Saturday 19th October, 2019


Phoenix Concert Hall


Vibrantly filling and spilling out of Fairfield Halls’ redeveloped spaces, our weekend Takeover brings a mix of international dance, pop-up events, performance-parkour, homegrown talent, workshops and mayhem to the heart of Croydon.

Catch the vaults, spins and falls of The Urban Playground Team, whose authentic fusion of free running and streetwise dance fuels their physically exuberant, outdoor performances. Families will be enthralled by the fantasy spectacle of Hocus Pocus, a gem of a show from Switzerland.

In the evenings, new work comes from captivating LA-based Mythili Prakash, chosen by Akram Khan as his ‘choreographer of the future’ for DU’s Four by Four Commissions, while superstar hip-hop company Boy Blue unveils its latest big-scale production REDD, bringing the house down for the final Takeover performance.

There will be plenty more ways to get involved during the Takeover, including your chance to become a DIY choreographer … Stay tuned for even more fun-filled announcements!

Venue Info

Phoenix Concert Hall

Designed as a scaled down version of the Royal Festival Hall, (both venues shared the same acoustic consultant, Hope Bagenal), our Concert Hall is recognised internationally for its fantastic and bright acoustics and has “…some of the finest acoustics in Europe” as stated by renowned conductor Leopold Stokowski.

The Phoenix Concert Hall will once again play host to the London Mozart players as resident Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the English Chamber Orchestra.
