Croydon's Christmas Celebration

  • Croydon's Christmas Celebration
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


Croydon’s Christmas will launch with a weekend’s worth of celebration stacked full of festive fun, entertainment, theatre and enjoyment for all the family. Create magical memories and picture perfect moments as our Christmas lights twinkle across the town centre.

A traditional pepper-pot style Helter Skelter will take centre stage, bringing all the fun of the fair to the heart of Croydon. Whatever your age, you can have a slide on the traditional Helter Skelter. What’s more, all proceeds raised will support the homeless in Croydon.

Offering an array of attractions for all ages, North End will be filled with professional, live theatre, music and dance, along with entertaining street performers, bringing a festive spring to your step, and who knows, a jingle to your dance. Croydon’s Christmas Celebration is completely FREE, so have yourself a merry little Christmas time.

Who knows, it may even snow…
