North End Activities

Situated at the heart of Croydon's bustling commercial centre, the North End pedestrian area serves as a popular backdrop for a wide range of entertainment, promotions and activities over the course of the year.

So that everyone has the best possible experience when they come here, we work closely with Croydon Council, the Metropolitan Police and other organisations to ensure these activities are effectively controlled and managed.

In the last year alone, we have enabled the delivery of well over 150 approved activities in North End, ranging from street entertainment, busking and fairground rides, to product promotions and leafleting.
