With Croydon Heritage Festival now in its third year, we chose a new theme to celebrate our town’s fantastic history and heritage in 2015: Famous Croydon, past present and future.

A host of Croydon’s famous people and places graced the pages on the events programme from a Flower Fairies Festival to celebrate the work of Croydon-born illustrator Mary Cicely Barker, to a brand new famous Croydon Heritage Trail uncovering Croydon’s famous hidden gems and taking in our very own Fairfield Halls, Wandle Park, Old Palace and more.

Through celebrating the diversity and rich culture in Croydon, the festival brought together more than 100 events put on by 70 local organisations that took place between Saturday 20 June to Sunday 28 June. We welcomed more than 5000 visitors!
