This is Croydon, London Borough of Culture 2023

A big, bold, celebration of the communities of Croydon.

Celebrate Croydon’s unique culture and communities through a year-long programme of culture from April 2023.

Celebrating talent and community pride through, art, food, music, performance and theatre. This is the year of our creative journey to show London and the country the powerhouse that is Croydon.

This is Croydon will be showcasing Croydon’s extraordinary communities, featuring world-leading artists through to Croydon’s young emerging talent. Whether it’s music, dance, spoken word, theatre, street art, exhibitions, fashion shows, interactive installations, workshops, debates, food festivals, carnivals, or a new combination – expect an array of vibrant, dynamic, and varied cultural moments and events.

Created, directed and presented by local people, this grassroots programme will showcase the very best of Croydon. You will get to explore the borough’s unique identity, communities and heritage, culture and creativity this year.
