Croydon's cultural vision unwrapped

Perception and Image
With its long and distinguished but often overlooked heritage, remarkable diversity and a steadily growing reputation for staging innovative arts, sports and community-focused events, Croydon is undergoing a cultural renaissance.
When: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018 - 18:00 to 20:00
Is it Free?: 
Yes

At its cornerstone will be the newly refurbished and much-loved Fairfield Halls which is being given a £30 million face lift complete with 1,800 seater concert hall, 2,000 square metre art gallery, new shops and offices.

Join us for an evening of exploration into Croydon’s cultural vision and how it will help to change perceptions of our town as the doors to the Fairfield Halls are thrown open for an exclusive insight into the progress of work to date and to hear from guest speakers, including:

  • Neil Chandler, Venue Director at the Fairfield Halls on the future vision, what you should come to expect from the newly redeveloped cultural hub, designs and above all, timescales for completion
  • Paula Murray, Cultural Director at Croydon Council on its approach to culture for the borough and what winning London Borough of Culture 2019 really means for Croydon
  • Joseph Watson, London Creative Director for the National Trust on why they chose our borough for the launch of Edge City, a project designed to change perceptions of heritage, celebrating the real places in which people live, work and play
  • Kevin Zuckowski-Morrison, RISEgallery founder for a candid insight into why he chose Croydon, his future plans for the gallery and his partnership with Fairfield Halls and how everyone, from all parts of the community, can become involved in culture
