Once again it is the West Norwood Feast time… yes it’s the 1st of june this weekend.. doesn’t the time fly! We will be putting on another of our popular Bazaars. You will be aware that the West Norwood Feast was featured in Time Out a few weeks ago so we expect the Feast may well be busier than ever.
Our doors open at 11am and we are open all day. We have Artists, Makers and Chocolate creators all with very reasonably priced lovingly made wares for your purchase… plenty of great gift ideas…
If you would like a stall please get in touch as it is hugely popular. Do get in touch soon to avoid disappointment….
See you all this Sunday, or Friday evening for our free film screening!
So we are rapidly approaching the second West Norwood Feast event! Are you ready? is West Norwood ready? … Well we at the Portico Gallery are nearly ready, and, there’s still a week to go!
We will once again be hosting a bazaar here, indeed if you are a maker a doer a baker or a painter there is always a room for you to have a stall with us. This comes with rain free 100% Guarantee rain, music (of your choice, if the DJ shows up) and super friendly happy warm smiling pixies* to help with your every requirement!
Okay, so what if you are not interested in a stall but would like to peruse high quality fair priced goodies?
Well, Portico is the place to be! …take a look at some of the stall holders we had at our first event. Painters, chocolatiers, makers and creators. And we also had last month amazing work by Chido Bueno a fantastic local author Chirstopher Bowden

Wow, what an amazing day. What started as a grey, rainy morning soon turned into a fantastic and very busy first Feast and Bazaar of the year. We had some great stalls in Portico Gallery including some regulars as well as some new faces. everything from designer hand made shoes to luxury chocolates. There were handbags and lovely cushions as well as imported mexican ephemera, there really was something for everyone. In the front corridor we had Sarah Lovett showing examples of her work, as well as giving demonstrations which really drew in the crowds. Some examples of her weaved rushes can be seen in the slide show below.
We did manage to get out and about as well and enjoyed the Feast very much. Although the weather was over cast there were a lot of people out enjoying themselves, indeed the queues for the food at lunch time were huge!
It was all in all a lovely day and nice to meet plenty of West Norwood people as well as people from further afield. If you would like a stall at our next Bazaar, taking place on the first Sunday of next month, do get in touch.
The lovely People at Archie Mac will have a stall at this weekends first Bazaar, yes it’s this Sunday!
