Fancy a Twirl in Tooting? Crowdfunding Campaign launched!

Imagine if the buses moved over for the day in Tooting's busy town centre to create a pop-up village green where children could dance and play and families and friends could share a picnic and watch the world go by?

Refugee Week 2017: Tooting activities starting Sunday 18th June

Refugee Week is a nationwide programme of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK, and encourages a better understanding between communities. 

Refugee Week 2017 starts in under a fortnight, and there are plenty of London activities to choose from.

Plus here are two local events to share:


1. Queens of Syria - free film Sunday 18th June

We're showing this thrilling and absorbing film about 50 Syrian refugee women joining together to prepare to perform an ancient Greek play about women and their families in war. It's definitely NOT simply a 'film of the play' - it's all about how the women explore telling their shared stories with passion and creativity. It's a moving and positive film.
Click here to see the flier, and save the date! Here's the listing on the Refugee Week site.
We're showing the film in the Hall at Mushkil Aasaan, the local charity supporting families, young people and the elderly.
  • Date: Sunday 18th June
  • Timings: Doors open 4:00 pm for tea and samosas, film at 5:00.
  • Venue: Mushkil Aasaan, 220 Upper Tooting Road, SW17 7EW
