The Second Annual West Norwood Arts Festival


Last year SLT created and hosted the first Fest Norwood; an arts festival based in the West Norwood for the local community and surrounding areas. The Festival staged 75 events, 62 of which were free, and the response to the festival was overwhelmingly positive. SLT are committed to providing this festival annually as a part of West Norwood’s ever growing colourful calendar of cultural and community events.
