Tootsmas returns this weekend!

| by Tooting Newsie | Posted in News, Food & Drink

Tootsmas, Tooting’s epic follow-up to September’s Tootopia, returns with a festive multi-site celebration!

Community kitchen Graveney Canteen cook up a tasty donations-only meal at their Tootsmas Luncheon, whilst on the Saturday and Sunday, the epic Street Food Takeover returns with a festive revamp featuring winter goodies from Raclette Brothers, Get Wurst, Barnyard Birds, Sticky Beaks, Salvador Souvlaki and Tootopia faves Gyoza Guys.

For Christmas shoppers, popular craftspeople Etsy debut their Made Local Christmas Market in South London for the very first time. The market will feature 40 of their most popular London creators selling handmade wares alongside mulled cider and treats to keep you feeling toasty.

Across the weekend, twenty market traders slash prices and serve up sumptuous specials. Those on the trail include Unwined, the Tapas Room, Hinata Japanese, Kimmie’s Jerk Joint and more! Once you’ve warmed your cockles, join local historian Geoff Simmons on his guided tour, ‘Walkin In A Tootsmas Wonderland’, the exciting seasonal follow-up to The Greatest Tooting Tour In History, packed with even more Tooting hidden gems and stories! Sholach Christmas Trees pops up for their very first tree market at Graveney & Meadow selling their finest Nordmann Fir, Norman Spruce, handmade wreaths and garlands.

Landmark department store Morleys of Tooting celebrate the opening of their festive department by inviting everyone in for Furniture, Festivities & Fizz – an afternoon of drinks, foodie treats and a chance to have a peek at their stylish new furniture and Christmas goods.

Those seeking a winter tipple can rock up to a variety of tastings, demos and masterclasses including a drop-in Rum Masterclass at cosy cocktail bar Ekcovision, a special make-your-own gin workshop at the Himalayan-inspired Hill Station inside Broadway Market, or get the low-down as Unwined invite locals to discover their special-recipe mulled wine with daily demos and tastings in Tooting Market. For families, there’ll be music classes from Join In & Jiggle, Christmas movies screening all weekend at a Festive Family Film Weekender and a chance to meet Father Christmas at his pop-up grotto.

On Saturday afternoon Fircroft Primary School open their gates for a festive celebration featuring food stalls, entertainment and of course mulled drink. Kids can make their own wrapping paper at The Antelope or, for adults, settle down for a calming Wine & Wreath-Making workshop. Come and get a festive pic at the Graveney and Meadow Tootsmas photobooth, with decorations kindly supplied by Morleys Tooting! 

The evenings are packed full of fun too: live gigs at Tooting Tram & Social, local Irish haunt The Ramble Inn and Broadway Market DJs return for another market shindig until late.

Tootsmas runs from 1st – 3rd December 2017 across various locations around Tooting Broadway and Tooting Bec. The latest information can be found at and Most events are free, but ticketed events have been detailed. Any ticket links can be found on the website
