South Norwood Community Festival is a free family event a few minute’s walk from Norwood Junction station.
Organised by volunteers to raise money for local charities, SNCF 2015 has a fun fair, music of all kinds, food of every description, and a varied programme of events.
SNCF builds on last year’s successful festival in the park with local legends Boston Brew, Birdogg, Ruby Red, Famous Last Words and Blues Hammer performing, along with another dozen or so bands on the main ‘Roger Piner’ stage.
There is also a second stage, DJ zone, arts and crafts stalls, a wide variety of food and of course a beer tent. We would like to thank all of the local businesses and sponsors who make this event possible.
This festival is for EVERYONE, it’s free, and it’s friendly. (quote from website)

Crochet & Knitted Accessories
I’m Elizabeth and I make crocheted and knitted accessories.
I’ve been crocheting for about 10 years and my excitement is the same as when I first started because there are so many possibilities and always something new to learn. I love the act of using a simple hook to transform lengths of thread into something that is usable, wearable, or a piece of art.
My background is in Geography and Statistics and whilst studying and working in these fields, crochet always came along with me. Whilst on the surface these subjects may seem far apart from textile work, there are connections: exploration forms a large part of both Geography and the creative process; and calculations are critical to Statistics and to the ability to produce a piece to a specific size.
My aim when making is to create something fun and functional, with an edge.

Freelance Photographer & Visual Designer
When I started in photography, large format plate and rostrum sheet film cameras were normal in studios. I processed and printed (darkroom work) with such formats, in my personal and freelance work I’ve used 35mm SLR’s and large format 6×6 cm twin-lens film cameras. I am familiar with both old and new techniques. Manipulation and enhancement in the past was completed in darkrooms and or as screen prints, but nowadays I use DSLR’s and digital applications, such as Adobe’s Creative Suite – PhotoShop, Illustrator; Lightroom, Affinity – Photo/Design, etc.
For more than forty years, I have been working as a photographer in London, England, a location that is reflected in my work. I try to capture my part of the world as I observe it and sometimes play with the results (retouch, enhance and manipulate images). I presently sell my work as prints (enlargements) and greetings cards to local businesses including, for example, giftware shops, florists, bookshops and art framers in London at locations of Clapham, Dulwich, Herne Hill and Brixton together with distribution throughout the UK and internationally to offices and homes in the USA and Australia.
Speciality work includes
Product placement studio pack-shots (still-life); studio location food photography/videos; studio location portraits
Public relations (PR)
Digital image manipulation; processing; retouching; enhancements
Land/City/Sea and Waterscapes
DTP/design & scanning;
Information technology on Macs
Pre/post-production video camera & editing
In my work as a commercial freelance food photographer/video cameraman, I contributed to the publishers Thomson and Cengage, for their Professional Chefand Food & Beverage Servicesrange of books and online videos. I have also taught photography and darkroom skills to others, running courses that demystify photography and simplifying the developing process to all ages and abilities.
