Street Live finale offers up a mix of dance, music, markets and above all, a new vibe
Delivered by Croydon Council and Croydon BID, Street Live is transforming the High Street area into a hive of activity for all ages throughout the summer, offering something a little different for shoppers, diners and passers-by. With 48 days’ worth of activities, there is something for everyone.
September starts in style with the ever popular Made in Croydon - High Street Makers’ Market on Saturday 1st September 2018, 10.00am – 5.00pm, celebrating some great designers, artisans and manufacturers who are inspired by living or creating in Croydon.
Busk Stop returns for aspiring musicians to grab the mic and take to the stage on four evenings in September (7, 14, 21 and 28 Sept), bringing together talented artists and ambient tunes from all over. Sit back, relax and take in the tunes and maybe grab a bit to eat from a number of our great venues.
Then get ready for Saturday 8th September – Sunday 9th September as we welcome back a double-bill from creative arts performers Scanners Inc.
On Saturday 8th September, The Bridge+ Disco will be performing with Marawa the Amazing & her Majorettes bringing the funkiest sounds, roller skating Majorettes, hula hooping, performance and dancing fun.
Had enough? We didn’t think so. On Sunday 9th September, Scanners Inc bring you The Bridge+ Jazz refreshed featuring the freshest vibe and dance with jazz fusion choreographer Gary Nurse.
Councillor Oliver Lewis, cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport said: “Thousands of people have visited the High Street so far this summer, to enjoy the warmest of weather with the coolest of sounds. The weather won’t last forever – so I encourage everyone to take advantage of the final weeks of Street Live.”
Matthew Sims, chief executive of Croydon BID said: “Street Live has bought together such a wide range of entertainment for all ages to enjoy this summer and it’s far from over. From the Made in Croydon market to Scanners Inc and The Bridge, we are welcoming everyone to eat out, tune in, step up and try it. Come and join us.
