  • Our Story

    The Tooting Twirl Team are looking for volunteers who can help us create and build a pop-up village green in the Tooting Broadway bus turning circle in Tooting, on 16th July!

    Inspired by last year’s Tour de Tooting, TTT will be creating a pop-up event in the Tooting Broadway bus turning circle (adjacent to Primark), where TFL have agreed to ‘budge the buses’, and make space for a twirly cavalcade of artistry, greenery, and peaceful cross-community celebration. We are hoping to generate a collective reimagining of a space which is central to our community, but is currently filled with a constant stream of buses, making the space (behind Tooting and Broadway markets, and adjacent to the local sorting office) dangerous to pedestrians, and full of bus fumes.

    We are nearing the end of our crowdfunding activities, and are looking for any volunteers who might be willing to help with a variety of making activities, to help us create a giant twirly flowerbed (which will be a sort of mini-stage), willow archway, twirly costume box, and potentially help with setting up planters, benches etc. on the day. Some of the making will be done in advance of the day itself, particularly some of the carpentry for the stage and twirly flowers. We are also looking for anyone who might be able to donate unwanted garden greenery or help us source clothes/fabrics from charity shops or other outlets for our dressing up box!

    We’d really appreciate any help we can get as we’re quite a small team, and we have quite a short time available to make this happen!

    Please contact Rhona directly, on rhona.sampson@gmail.com or Richard, Jeni and Lucy at transitiontowntooting@gmail.com if you can spare an hour or two between now and Sunday to help us out!

    All the best,

    The Tooting Twirl Team
