Croydon winter lights

Since 2007, Croydon BID, on behalf of over 550 businesses in the town centre, has brought Christmas lights and cheer.

In even the darkest of days, Croydon BID has brought even more brightness than ever before, with a ceiling of light and Croydon’s biggest gift of all, literally a giant gift box.

Croydon BID’s Christmas scheme has key focal points across the town centre, such as the 1000 metre display of ceiling light, 101 motifs and christmas lights adorning 24 trees, and a giant gift box, which serves as the perfect photo opportunity for those coming into the town centre. 

Our Christmas lights are installed and in place for seven weeks, kick-starting the festive season for the town centre, delivering over 6,000 hours of additional lighting with a little twinkle here and there!

Working with other property owners and retailers, we have provided further lighting to improve the overall look and feel of our town centre with the inclusion of the lights at the Marks and Spencer store and the currently vacant Allders unit. 

Our lighting scheme consists of thousands of LED (environmentally conscious) lights across eight streets in the town centre:

  • Lansdowne Road
  • Surrey Street
  • George Street East
  • George Street West
  • High Street
  • Church Street
  • Crown Hill
  • North End

Without Croydon BID and the business community we represent, there simply would be no festive lights for the town centre.
