FREE ‘Croydon Roller’ event revealed for Christmas

To celebrate the festive season, Centrale & Whitgift shopping centres and Croydon BID launch of a free family-friendly roller rink in Centrale Shopping Centre.
Starting from 1st December and running until Christmas Eve, families can revel in the joy of roller skating in a Neon Street Art style pop-up rink, suitable for skaters aged 5 and over, making it the perfect activity for families to enjoy together.

Skating sessions will be held daily from 12pm to 5pm from Monday to Saturday, and from 12pm to 4pm on Sundays. Additionally, special SEND sessions will be available on weekdays at 12pm, ensuring that everyone can participate and enjoy the event.

The roller rink has been transformed into a breathtaking street art haven by talented Croydon artist Alec Saunders. Each twist and turn of the rink reveals a burst of creativity and colour, to fully immerse skaters.

But the fun doesn’t stop there! In addition to the roller rink, there will also be a Doodle wall where little ones can unleash their creativity by colouring in their own unique way.

What makes this event even more special is that it’s in partnership with the Reedham Children’s Trust. Croydon Roller encourages attendees to donate whatever they can afford to support the trust’s important work. QR codes will be available at the event, making it easy for visitors to contribute.
