In a Nutshell

Feast's Food Week is returning in June 2017, and this year we are teaming up with Station to Station: West Norwood and Tulse Hill Business Improvement District for a series foodie events at your favourite West Norwood and Tulse Hill venues. We are celebrating all things cultural, creative and artistic, so if it's poetry, art, storytelling or dance that catches your eye, come and join us!

The Whole Hog

The week is powered by West Norwood Feast, the monthly community-run market, and Station to Station: West Norwood and Tulse Hill Business Improvement District. Our aim is to showcase many of the great eateries that West Norwood and Tulse Hill now have to offer.

Although the weather was a bit grey for a picnic, the food was great and the atmosphere at the park cafe lively. The park has some of the best views in London and people there included a bunch of artists with easels setting out to paint the trees. The food was freshly cooked Iraqi food - middle eastern with some twists. Falafel, kebabs, dolmades and chicken and chick pea stew. An event well worth repeating, especially when the sun is shining. And there is always some Iraqi food available at the cafe.
