Wake up to West Norwood

Our Happening has happened!

Update 5th August:

Well we had a fantastic day here on Sunday. Thank you all so much for making it such a great day.

We will leave this page up  for a few more days as a big thank you to all the people who made it happen. West Norwood is a fantastic village in london and it’s the people that make it what it is.

Update 30th July:

We’ve sent emails out yesterday to many more people who should get involve. Our art, ceramics and yoga teachers will all be here throughout the day to sign you up and get your creative juices flowing. Also we’ve been thinking for some time about ‘film’ here and are keen to hear you ideas about films you’d like to see here in West Norwood.

Our Artist in residence will open up the strange room in the corner, an on going evolving performance piece that attempts to recreate the offices of a shadowy fictional organisation known as the C.R.O.S. this will be from 2pm. Our artist in residence has had films shown in london  this year and is working on a feature film.

ALSO the Portico singers will be performing live throughout the day  and we might even get some other live music. And yet more, been to our Music Hall evening yet? no? oh well come along on sunday and watch some great footage of previous performances…. showing throughout the day.

But wait… what actually is it? Well, friends, it is a gathering of people in a place that is quite close to the geographical centre of West Norwood. This fact, no doubt, could be argued over, but  no good would come of that… Indeed arguing is never an ideal solution.

The happening (it started life as a symposium but evolved) will bring together a diverse cross section of our fair North Wood in the hills. Beer? …well yes, as we now have a licence you may be able to buy a beer, but that really isn’t the point.

The point is this. We will attempt to bring people together to meet the other people involved in all the different things that ‘Happen’ in West Norwood. Our lovely new leisure centre has opened up today – a cause for great celebration indeed!

So people, artists, film buffs, musicians, cake making bakers and Open Works members: let’s get together and … HAPPEN!

Wake up to West Norwood!

Come along on Sunday August 3rd (FEAST day)

to find out more about your local charities, community groups and artists.
There will be visual presentations in the gallery, stalls of local makers and suppliers, talks and Q&A sessions from various individuals and representatives of groups including:

Cultural Groups.

Faith Groups.

Youth Groups.

Health and Leisure.

Media.

Forums.

Heritage.

and so many utter fantastical wonders you really really should not miss it!

We will be launching our Festival which is taking part here to coincide with the Lambeth Heritage festival and will begin on Friday 5 September with the film Paths of Glory.

 

The talks will be held every half hour between 11am and 3pm and will last no more than five minutes each.

The gallery now has a licensed bar selling locally brewed beer and snacks, wine and soft drinks.

 

This will be a great opportunity to learn more about your local area, promote your business or organisation, and discover a new passion!

For more information please call us:

And below, for your viewing pleasure, is a small slide show of pictures taken in the building over the last few months, can you see yourself in any of them?
