Originating from the 14th century the Village Feast is a celebration, inspired by the Bishop of the day, for parishes to observe the dedication of their church. In the case of Norton sub Hamdon the church is dedicated to St Mary the Virgin and so the feast has been observed down the years towards the end of September. In 2015 it was part of the Norton Festival. There was an evening of ‘feasting’ and entertainment enjoyed by around 100 people in the Village Hall.
Resulting from ‘The Feast’ £159.94 was donated to Akamba Aid, a local charity associated with the village.
