2nd October featuring Bird in the Belly plus floorspots

Hi all,

For our second gig of 2021 at the Gorringe Park we have the brilliant Bird in the Belly as our featured act.

Bird in the Belly is a Brighton-based group composed of Laura Ward and Adam Ronchetti, Ben Webb and Tom Pryor.

They create what have been described as “hypnotically original compositions” based on little known and forgotten lyrics, poems and stories from around the UK.

As before, there will be floor spots for those who want to sing a song, perform a tune or play the spoons.

Those who want to perform should come along at 7:30pm to put your name on the list. Doors 7:30pm. Music starts at 8pm.

Entry £5 on the door (cash only – no pre-booking, sorry!) Upstairs at the Gorringe Park, 29 London Road, Tooting, SW17 9JR

See y’all there! Any queries, call/message 07375481959 (Sarah) or 07951163434 (Alex)

Tooting Folk on Tooting Bec Common 3rd July 2021

Hi all,

The last outdoor Tooting Folk on Tooting Common was a great success and so – again weather permitting – we’re going to do another one on 3rd July!

Bring a picnic, bring some drinks and bring something to sit on if you can – would recommend camping chairs which you can buy for around £10 in Asda and probably other stores too.

Let’s aim to meet at the shaded area just southwest of the cafe from 2pm – here is the link on Google Maps:

If you have any questions, message me on 07951163434.

Look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!

1st May Tooting Folk Zoom singaround

Hi all!

It’s been a strange year and a bit, but this May’s Zoom singaround will be the last one we’re doing (hopefully) for the forseeable future!


In June and July, we’ll be aiming to do so outdoor singarounds before our standard August break and then – fingers crossed – we might be able to transition back into some proper physical gigs, assuming there isn’t another Covid resurgence.


So, once more with feeling on 1st May!


If you want to join, just download Zoom (if you haven’t already) and then click the link below:

Meeting ID: 714 791 5213


Passcode: 546321


You’ll be placed in a ‘meeting room’ and then I’ll accept your entry to the Zoom meeting.

Trying to avoid gatecrashers – a problem we’ve had a couple times now – so if I don’t know you or someone else can’t vouch for you I might send a message to you before accepting you just to check.


We’ll be hosting the Zoom meeting from 7:30pm – send me a chat message in the application if you want to play/sing a song and I’ll sign you up. Music will kick off at 8pm, just like the normal events. We’ll finish sometime after 11pm.

7th November Tooting Folk Zoom singaround

Hi all,

Sorry guys, I know it’s been a while since we’ve had a Tooting Folk session, for a variety of reasons. I had hoped to be working on setting up some live gigs again but, alas, it was not to be.

So, since we’re going back into lockdown I thought I’d restart the sessions on a monthly basis on the first Saturday of the month, like the live gigs used to be.

The set-up is the same as before – if you want to join, just download Zoom (if you haven’t already) and then click the link below:
