'Stuff of life' Festival in Headley Villas Park, Sherwood Rise, Notingham

Published: October 10, 2010 00:28 by Tash at Nottingham Indymedia

Stuff of LifeThe fourth annual Stuff of Life festival took place at Hedley Villas Park, Sherwood Rise on Saturday 9th October.

The event celebrates the diversity and history of the local area by bringing several hundred residents together in the tiny park that was renovated five years ago by the Residents’ Association. Participants listened to live music from local bands and performers, view original artwork displayed on the railings around the park by Nottingham artists, a variety of individual craft stalls and sampled food provided by neighbours and Veggies.

Three bakeries used to operate around Hedley Park at different times and this is commemorated through a Bread Baking Competition, where anyone can enter by bringing a loaf along on the day and possibly winning a prize. It was this connection that gave the event its name – bread is part of the history of the area, but it’s also part of the present – it’s common (in many different forms) to all the many cultures and nationalities that make their home in Sherwood Rise.

Residents’ Association chair, Mike Peverill adds that ‘the event is a bit different to Goose Fair happening nearby and certainly a lot cheaper!!'
