This is the start of the new Seething Season - a chance for the community to come out and celebrate the Legend of Lefi Ganderson - the Goat Boy of Mount Seething. A chance to celebrate the start of Spring and it's extra special because it's a Leap Year and if Lefi taught us anything it is to use that extra day to celebrate our communities.
We want to make sure that The Seething Festival 201 20s bigger and better so make sure that you join in. The day will start around 2.00 at St Andrew’s Square, Maple Road where there will be a chance to make mask and head dresses for the Grand Procession around Seething at 3.00pm. After the procession there will be more entertainment until we end at around 5.00pm.
The British Bread Golf Open 2020
Sunday 5th April - 1pm to 3pm
Eagle Brewery Wharf
By Woodys Bar, Kingston, KT1 1HH
On elf the great events of the sporting calendar returns to Kingston and bread golfing giants from around the globe gather to pitch their skills against local talent.
If you've never played golf before then this is the game for you. It's fun, it's daft and it helps raise money for the charity Creative Youth, organisers of the International Youth Arts Festival in Kingston.
Come along to watch, laugh and maybe have a go. Could you be wearing the prestigious 'Green Jacket' in 2020

Seething is a State dedicated to using creativity to bring people together. It is open to everyone join in whenever and wherever they like. We believe that by creating things and bringing people together we can release talents and energies in our community in a positive, engaging and sharing way.
Our journey began with the retelling of the legend ‘Lefi Ganderson - the Goat Boy of Mount Seething’ in 2009. Last heard in 1921 this heartwarming tale shows the triumph of good over evil and the ability of one individual to change the lives of many. It asks the question - ‘what can we do to make life better for everyone?’ You can hear and read Lefi’s story by clicking the goat boy head
Since then the people of Seething, Surbiton have been working to develop a stronger sense of community by creating events and happenings that everyone can join in with.
Recently we opened the Museum of Futures and The Community Kitchen. Our work was recognised when we won the national
Britain has Spirit competition.
We are now launching a project to create a Suburban Farming centre to inspire a generation transform Tolworth & Surbiton putting food onto tables, into the Community Kitchen and into the food chain. You can find out how to support by clinking on the logo below
