Furzedown Voices

We are looking forward to lots of different talks in 2024. Recent highlights included the wonderful Theresa (who’s aunt is a member of The Project) who brought in costumes from BBC’s Strictly Show, and some wonderful talks from local authors and historians.

If you have any thoughts about what you’d like to hear, have any connections or could give a talk yourself please let us know.

Way back in 2014 we first  discussed the possibility of having a couple of talks on topics which might be of interest to our members. We started off with Helen Long, who told us some fascinating stories about the history of Furzedown and subjects have included: Wartime bombing raid, Tooting wine, Alternative Therapies, local history, Music Hall and Christmas traditions, Knitting and Crafts, Healthy Eating, Patterns in Asian Culture, History of E & A Wates, the Old Toy Museum and a special musical talk and entertainment at Christmas…. The talks usually lasted approximately 2 hours, they have been a resounding success, proving not only very popular with our members, but also with members of our local Furzedown community. .

Below are the posters used for our talks. We have included photos where we can, and we hope it will give you a flavour of the variety of our talks.
