Morden Family Funday sponsored by Versatile Builders

How to find and where to park for the Morden Family Funday?

The Morden Family Funday is located in Morden Park, Morden. On the Sports Playing Fields (opposite the Mosque). There are two pedestrian entrances on London Road (A24), one opposite the mosque and another at the traffic lights just before Merton College, These are perhaps a ten minute walk from Morden Tube station. Buses 93 and 80 run from the tube to the entrances.


Public Car Parking can be accessed at the junction of Links Avenue and Hillcross Avenue, SM4 4AT. The cost is £2.00 per person which includes car parking for the whole day. Under 16s FREE.


Meanwhile, alternative parking can be located in the public car park at Morden Leisure Centre, although Pay and Display charges may apply. If you choose to park here then the quickest way to the Funday is to walk back to the main road (London Rd, A24) and enter the Funday by the gate just left of the traffics lights.


THE EVENT IS NOT LOCATED BY THE BANDSTAND or in Morden HALL Park (National Trust)

What's on at Morden Family Funday


Morden Family Funday Mission

To create an exciting, adventurous and action packed funday for all the family and community. By inviting local activity groups, charities and all working for the benefit of our community, (keeping the fair local is one of the main aims), we plan to involve one and all, old and young, in a day of fun and celebration. A funday for the community by the community.



The Morden Family Funday Events in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 have raised over £32,000.00 for local charities and organisations. As requested by some of the organisers, the MFFD also supported charities and organisations outside of the local area, even as far as Tanzania, Africa.


At the 2018 event we plan to highlight and support one local charity and donate as much as 50% of the funds raised from the event to the main charity, whilst continuing to support the other charities that attend.

In the forthcoming years we plan to rotate the main charity that we support. The charity chosen as the main charity will be selected by the MFD organisers committee.


The day will include:
  • Stall Holders/local organisations having a fun stall (with games) showing their activities and signing up new recruits
  • Areas for children, young people and adults, with play areas and community interest stalls
  • Funfair and Bouncy Castles
  • Family Fun Runs
  • Picnic and catering Zone
  • Sound Stage and Arena for live events 
  • Festival of Football 
  • Coops Classic Car Show
  • Children's Storybook Tent
  • Children's Train Ride
  • XPN Dance Troop
  • Goodfellows Raffle
  • Zumba
  • Line Dancing
  • Rodeo Bull
  • Maven Vets Dog Show
  • and much much more

The Event will be made up of over 60 stalls, both commercial and charity.

Due to recent concerns we will be contacting the Lower Morden Lane Equestrian Stables tomorrow (Friday) and will be advising them to cancel.
The Morden Family Funday team were contacted earlier this week by Lower Morden Lane Equestrian Stables regarding the Ponies attending the event. A schedule was then set up and a quiet, prime position given to their mobile stables so if they had to leave they have an easy exit. Indeed the animals welfare is always our primary concern .This was totally agreed by Lower Morden Lane Equestrian Stables who initiated the booking. 
Please do not post any further negative comments about the event as we have listened to all the recent concerns and opinions and have acted appropriately.

"Just wanted to say well done for another successful year. I felt the layout was an improvement with audience participation 

I was at another event today, somebody recognised me and also mentioned that they thought it was the best year they had been to do thought you would like to know there are many positive comments still going from your event.

Kind regards
