Elsewhere the best of Tooting’s live music talent will take to the stage at Tooting Tram & Social. The Tram will be kicking off proceeding in style with two hotly tipped indie bands Pleasure House and Native People, followed by a not-to-be-missed party set from DJ 7oel on Friday 25th.

Street food fanatics rejoice! Pitching up in Graveney & Meadow’s backyard on Saturday 26th will be 10 of the finest vendors currently trading on London’s street food circuit.

And to celebrate the Rugby World Cup, Tooting Tram & Social will be transformed into Tooting’s very own Twickenham Stadium allowing visitors to lounge on the turf and soak up the action in front of the big screen. 

Additional must dos include a historical walking tour led by Councilor Rex Osborn, free bike check-up sessions at Pedal Bike Café, pop-up cinema at Tooting Market, The Big Tooting Bake Off at Coffee Co. Tooting in support of Macmillian Cancer Support, and with a nod to Cask Ale Week, Antelope invites real ale fans to meet Croydon brewery Volden and sample its newest wild hop brew – launching at Tootopia.
