SOUTH Norwood Arts Festival (SNAF) finished with a bang at its Grand Finale Fair on Sunday.

The two week festival had featured a wide variety of events, from talks and quizzes to comedy and theatre.

People for Portland Road organised SNAF and held the closing fair at Woodside Green following a special service on Sunday.

Anna-Maria Smit, festival organiser, said: "It went really well. Thankfully the weather held off and everyone seemed to be having a great time.

"The festival has grown over the years and it's something we want to keep evolving. "

A variety of food stalls offered food from countries all over the world as well as pitches for community groups.

There was also plenty for children to get stuck into including bungee runs and a climbing wall, while Edge FM ran the main stage which had music from the sixties up to modern chart songs.

A taekwondo group gave demonstrations to the crowds and the London Urban Arts Academy also performed.

Earlier highlights of the festival included a comedy night headlined by Crystal Palace-supporting comedian Kevin Day, as well as a chance to visit Norwood Junction's secret garden created by volunteers and members of the British Transport Police.

South Norwood Tourist Board held a Great Big South Norwood Quiz and a historian gave a talk on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's links to the area.

SNAF has been running in different guises for seven years and will return next year.
