The first Vai Tolworth! Festival took place at Corinthian-Casuals Football Club grounds in September 2019.
Saturday 28 September saw CCFC play at home where they were visited by our 2 commissioned puppets designed by Mandinga Arts. Members of the local community had been trained in how to bring the puppets to life in sessions throughout September.

Sunday 29 September saw an explosion of sound, colour and creativity transform the Club grounds with Brazilian food, drink and craft traders, alongside performances and workshops from groups including:
London Latin Collective
London School of Samba
The Festival involved a series of workshops run with local primary schools in advance of the Festival. Find out more here.
