From the 12th to 20th May, Transition Town Tooting invites you to join with us to explore the keys to happiness and wellbeing, as part of our year-long celebration of what helps us lead happier and more satisfied lives. After all our preparation - we are nearly there!
Starting on Saturday 12th:
Treasuring Tooting / Treasure in Tooting
Saturday 12th May - all day from 7.30am
A day-long interactive celebration of local wellbeing in Tooting
From the open waters of Tooting Bec Lido at 730am, we will travel through twelve different destinations in Tooting - including the quiet hush of the Library; the grandeur of the Bingo Hall; craft making in the Tram and Social; a visit the Dawah Souk at Mushkil Aasaan; and sharing refreshments at the Sikh Khalsa Centre.
At each stop on the walk one of the 12 ‘keys’ to wellbeing will be experienced and celebrated.
Please see the lovely map for times and venues and do feel free to join the walk at any point on our journey! Here is a preview of the map (or see this link to read and download):

A giant bee piñata, made by local artists and residents, will be carried along the route. At the walk's final destination, from 415pm on, this will be smashed in the traditional manner of piñatas with who knows what goodies on offer.
The destination of Treasuring Tooting will be the
Tooting Transition Shop
68 Upper Tooting Road, SW17 7PB (Xclusive Tiles & Bathrooms)
Opening 5pm Saturday 12th May and running 10am until 6pm until - and including - Sunday 20th May
Continuing on from the 12th May, for nine days only TTT takes over an empty shop on Upper Tooting Road to bring together all the energies of TTT into one place and invite people in Tooting to take part in re-imagining our world.
As part of Wandsworth Arts Festival we've teamed up with renowned participatory artists Encounters to create The Tooting Transition Shop - a shop where nothing is for sale but all are welcome to exchange stories, ideas, skills and food.
Add your most memorable moments to the Tooting map, top up your fill of wellbeing, sow seeds of hope for the future, hand-make a souvenir of Tooting, and find out when the Tooting bees are coming...
Over the 9 days, watch the shop shelves fill with the stories, creations and visions of people in Tooting.

We look forward to welcoming you to join in with Treasuring Tooting and the Tooting Transition Shop!
