Every Sunday Surrey Street hosts live entertainment and DJs alongside the food and craft stalls.
This weekend (6 November) is no different, and the line-up is a fantastic one, with musicians who have appeared on national TV and played live to thousands alongside household name bands.
The day is organised by local musical entrepreneurs, Beats and Eats, with support from the council. The team will also be hosting events at the newly opened Boxpark later in the year.
Surrey Street Sundays open at 11am and run through to 5pm. They are part of the council’s ambition to invest £1.1m in the area as part of the regeneration of the town centre. The New Year will see a host of physical improvements, including new road surfacing, architectural lighting, and public art.
“Between Surrey Street and Boxpark Croydon is definitely seeing a huge shift in what the town has to offer. Brilliant food, amazing live music, and a warm welcome. We’re proving that our potential is about to be realised.”
Councillor Mark Watson, cabinet member for economy and jobs
