What is the Furzedown Community Network?
The Furzedown Community Network (FCN), is made up of local people keen to promote a sense of community and help make Furzedown – an area and local government ward between Streatham and Tooting in South West London – a good place to live, work and play.
We work to improve our neighbourhood, which includes organising events including the annual Furzedown Summer Festival and Christmas Market and smaller events such as quiz nights. The activities undertaken reflect the interests and energy of the group members who organise them.
There is an annual general meeting which meets early in the year to elect the committee and discuss other issues.
Local businesses support us in various ways and give discounts to our members.
FURZEDOWN PRIDE 2023
June is Pride month, and we would love you to join us for a celebration of our diverse community with our very own Furzedown Pride! 🏳️🌈
Save the Date: Saturday 17 June 2023
Everyone is welcome! LGBTQIA2S+, Heterosexual, adults, and children.
Community Street Party 🥳🦄
Location: Nimrod Road, between Parklands and Brookview Road
The celebration begins when we come together for a colourful street party full of Pride, including a rainbow art project, family-friendly fun, competitions, games, and a Story Wall to pin your own story or read the history of many of your neighbours’ personal journeys in coming out and acceptance.
BYOE – Bring your own Everything! Food, drinks, chairs, etc. We are providing some tables and lots of fun! Come to join in or chat and get to know your neighbours better. We’d love you to be part of this celebration.
What does LGBTQIA2S+ mean? LGTBQIA2S+ is an acronym for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and/or Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, Two-Spirit, and the countless affirmative ways in which people choose to self-identify.

We are hosting an incredible evening of drag performers and queer comedians during the evening. This event is kindly presented with the support of our local, The Furzedown.
