West Norwood’s first arts’ festival concluded on Sunday 12th August.
The newly restored Fire Station and South London Theatre hosted a ten day multi-arts festival tagged: Fest Norwood. Fest Norwood was designed to celebrate and highlight West Norwood’s heritage, its community and its local businesses and also to promote well-being through art and culture. The festival featured a huge variety of events and activities, many of them free, and all of them showcasing the very best of West Norwood community.
Activities and events for children and adults included – theatre, music, dance, free yoga sessions, baby disco, poetry and spoken word, comedy, cinema and a guided cemetery tour.
Station to Station ran a High Street Treasure Hunt competition encouraging people to visit approximately 11 local businesses and shops to take a photo of individual letters that eventually spell out ‘FEST NORWOOD’. The competition had a good turnout of participant and the winners were awarded vouchers to spend in their favourite West Norwood and Tulse Hill business. The festival ran from Friday 3rd – Sunday 12th August 2018.
