Croydonites: residents of the London Borough of Croydon
Croydon Nights: exceptionally good nights out in the theatre...in Croydon
Croydonites is a festival of new theatre and performance for Croydon. Its mission is to showcase local theatre makers, and bring some of the best contemporary performance work from around the UK to your CR0 doorstep. The inaugural event took place in November 2015 when four companies presented work at two venues. The 4th edition took place in May 2019 and featured nine artists over four weeks in five venues. It has become a fixed event on Croydon's Cultural Calendar and regularly commissions new work by local artists. In 2020 it will also start producing the work of Croydon theatre makers.
The festival is directed by local resident, Anna Arthur, who regularly travels all over London and beyond to see the work of experimental and alternative theatre makers.
Croydonites Festival is supported by Arts Council England (Grants for the Arts) and Croydon Council through their Cultural Partnership Fund.
