Thanks for taking a look at our site. Ziggy Played Guitar has been created by bringing together the imagination, gumption and dedication of many different people who work hard to keep the Ziggy flame alive. Here are just some of the organisations and individuals who have helped make this happen.

Tim is a local historian and author. His book "Hello Tolworth, I'm Ziggy" charts the rich history of the Toby Jug pub, the Ziggy gig we celebrate on this site, and the impact it all had on popular culture and the careers of many globally adored artists and bands. What we share on this site is just a smattering of what's in Tim's tome, so if any of what you've read today his whetted your appetite, then buy his book! You can purchase it here...
