PS there’s some other great stuff happening at the Portico Gallery this month – including the Feast Film Nights on 10th Oct and Mambista on Fri 23rd Oct!

Bazaar and Dance – Sun 7th June

The Portico Gallery Bazaar  – 10am to 4pm, Sunday 7th June

The theme for this month’s bazaar is DANCE….
There’ll be performances and demonstrations of various aspects of this fascinating art form including: Flamenco, Latin Folk Dance, Free Dance and more besides.

Latin folk dance (mailchimp) Freestyle dance (Mailchimp)

The main area in the Gallery, the downstairs large hall, will be used for the dance demonstrations.  So the space available for stalls is limited to the entrance and the Gallery shop – approx. ten stalls, so first come, first served….so BOOK YOUR STALL NOW!!

Stalls cost £40 for the day.  You can set up from 8 o’clock in the morning of the day.  

As usual the bazaar will be held on the day of West Norwood Feast – the event that attracts thousands of visitors all of which can come to The Portico Gallery.  So there’s plenty of opportunity to display and sell your wares.  This Bazaar has the added bonus of an extra-special Dance theme and so is going to be particularly popular.  Don’t miss this chance……
