Bounce Theatre is proud to have printed brand new Sugar & Spice zines for anyone who’d like to join in at home.
Containing a range of different activities, from pop-quizzes to spot-the-difference scenes of our local area, the packs are a nostalgic and creative exploration of Tooting.
“For the past six months, Bounce has been working with young people to uncover some of the heritage of Tooting High Street. The packs are a way to mark some of our ideas, the activities we have tried out and celebrate the project so far.”
Louise Pendry, Artistic Director
The company was delighted to send some of them to St. George’s Hospital as part of the Arts Team’s Creative Resource Collection Station.
Sugar & Spice is a heritage lottery-funded project, intending to animate the hidden heritage of Tooting High Street. Sugar & Spice celebrates the people, the places, and the spaces which helped shape the High Street as we know it today. The project will culminate in an ambitious performance, travelling decades in 90 minutes, and a pop-up museum for Tooting.
