Other local events on Feast Market day – and beyond!
“The area’s crowning achievement, and a testament to the community spirit in the neighbourhood, is the West Norwood Feast. This hugely popular event held on the first Sunday of the month, from April through to December, is more than just another street market.”Anthea Masey
