So, we are sad to announce that we are going to be putting Tooting Folk on indefinite hiatus.
Myself and Sarah no longer live in Tooting or anywhere near Tooting and it has already been a lot of work trying to keep the night going from so far away over the past few years. Combined with the impact of Covid-19 and the struggle to get enough money to pay the acts properly, we don’t think we can keep it going.
We will hopefully be opening a new folk night somewhere closer to where we live in Lewisham, so please do keep an out for that. Also, if anyone would like to take over Tooting Folk and continue running it somewhere in Tooting please do get in touch.
As it stands, however, we’ve enjoyed hosting the events in the Selkirk and the Gorringe Park and it’s a pity we have to draw it to a close. Thanks to everyone who came along to listen and perform and all the featured acts!
Hopefully see you all soon in a different setting!
Alex & Sarah
