SOUTH NORWOOD ARTS FESTIVAL: IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO GET INVOLVED!
South Norwood Arts Festival is coming! (October 24th – November 7th)
Can you volunteer to help at one or more events? The Big Fair on Saturday 24th October especially needs plenty of volunteers to make things go smoothly. Just reply to this message.
The craft fair on Nov. 7 is now fully booked, but there are still a few tables available at the Big Fair at Stanley Halls on Sat Oct 24.
Can you perform? Are you an artist of any sort? There may still be a slot for you in the programme.
Look out for our street banners (now), posters (sson), programmes (in about 2 weeks) at various venues and online at www.peopleforportlandroad/arts.
Can you donate any good quality second-hand books for our fair bookstall? You can leave them at Treasures, 273 Portland Road. (Source: People for Portland Road)
