Croydon's Christmas Celebration

8th November 2019
  • Croydon's Christmas Celebration
This year, Croydon’s Christmas will be launched with a weekend’s worth of celebration, which will be full of festive fun, entertainment, theatre and enjoyment for all the family.

Saturday the 16th November will see a traditional pepper-pot style Helter Skelter take centre stage, bringing all the fun of the fair to the heart of Croydon. The rides will be charged at a nominal fee of £1 per person. All proceeds that are raised will be donated to support the homeless in Croydon; to two reputable charities who work locally: Evolve Housing + Support and Crisis.

A professional, live theatre in a sheltered marquee will be brought to North End, to present professional 25 minute-long shows that are suitable for all the family. Live music and dance performances will take place on another stage, with an exciting variety of performers. There will also be a mass of street artists and performers to add to the festive atmosphere. All of this will be free.

Centrale & Whitgift Shopping Centres will also lead a fun-filled programme, which includes a ‘meet and greet’ with Minions, Bob and Kevin, a special preview opening of their new Fairy-tale Grotto to see Santa and his elves, a Virtual Reality Sleigh Ride and much more.

There will also be a surprise experiential experience, which will be revealed on Saturday 16th November. (Clue: “But as long as you love me so…”)

With spectacular Christmas lights to brightly light the town centre, and a full programme of festive fun and activities throughout the weekend, Croydon’s Christmas Celebration is unmissable this year.
