WATCH: Tooting Common hosts Celtic-inspired festival of the dead

A storytelling organisation hosted a festival of the dead inspired by a Celtic tradition on Sunday 29th October on Tooting Common.

South London Storytelling organised the event as part of a week-long schedule of events which explored the Celtic tradition of Samhain, which marks the end of the light season and the beginning of darker nights.

The co-directors, Christy Billings and Alison Royce, enlisted 40 volunteers to support the event.

The event took place at Woodfield Pavilion on the northern side of Tooting Common and events included a firebreather, Morris dancers, and a drumming band.
