Live music and dance from fifteen arts groups from across Croydon will be helping raise funds for the Mayor’s three chosen charities at an event entitled ‘Love, Not Hate.’
The gala evening takes place on Saturday 12 November from 6pm to 9pm at Stanley Halls in South Norwood.
Performers will be taking part from: Aspara Arts, the Asian Resource Centre, Beeja, Chenda Group, the Gye Nyame Development Foundation, Hardy’s Karate Club, KCWA, KCWA Trust, London Hindu Aikyavedi, Sangeetha of the UK, Soundstep Music School, Sree Narayana Dharma Samajam, TangoLibre, South Indian Muslim Welfare Association, and the Upahaar School of Dance.
The Mayor of Croydon, Councillor Wayne Trakas-Lawlor, said: “After the recent increase in hate crimes, the event is an opportunity to celebrate the rich diversity of Croydon. It’s fantastic to see so many performers taking part in a show that not only promises some great entertainment, but that will also raise money for three extremely worthwhile local charities.”
Entrance is £10 per head, either payable in advance or on the door. For booking details e-mail: The.Mayor@croydon.gov.uk or Cllr Manju Shahul-Hameed firstname.lastname@example.org.
All proceeds will be split equally between British Home, Stanley Halls People’s Initiative, and Croydon Commitment.
