West Norwood Feast
The first Sunday of the month, April through to December, is Feast day in West Norwood. For the past seven years, this is the day when 5000+ locals take to the streets to enjoy their very own volunteer-powered street market festival.
West Norwood Feast is a community event built around 100 market stalls over five sites along the high street. It is run almost entirely by local volunteers who book the stalls and organise a full programme of free children’s activities and live entertainment. It is a farmer’s market, a craft fair, a flea market and a street food hub all rolled into one, yet the goal has always been to provide an experience that was wider than that.
Each monthly Feast is themed by volunteers who organise free community engaging events in addition to the core market activity. These range from talks on Caribbean cuisine for Black History month, a fashion show showcasing local talent and retail, art trails up and down the high street, to a Sports Feast that featured all the local organisations that promote active lifestyles.
Added to this, volunteers organise a full schedule of entertainment at each Feast (from brass bands to live DJs), an open mic performance space for young people and plenty of fun and creative children’s activities (from sports days to mural making).
