We are delighted to announce that we have just won a pledge of £14,000 from the GLA Mayor of London to help towards the cost of our new street market Twist on Station Rise. In order to release this money from the Mayor’s office, we still need to raise more cash in crowd-funding (15th September: £4,453 still needed)
To find out more and pledge cash support please click on the following link: TWIST ON STATION RISE POP-UP MARKET
As you know, for months we have been planning Twist on Station Rise – a once-a-month pop-up market in the area immediately surrounding Tulse Hill Station: Station Rise, ‘Twist Alley’ and The Hub on Norwood Road (James Wilson Coffeeshop). With the right support and sustainability built in, Twist could pave the way for more street markets in the future.
Dates: The 1st event will take place during the month following us reaching our crowd-funding target – ideally last Thursday October 2015, but it’s down to crowd-funding.
Please add it to your facebook and twitter feeds – the more followers the better! @TwistRise @LDN_Gov #highstreets #twist # tulsehill
