With increased capacity of over 800 seats the Ashcroft Theatre will present seasons of plays and musicals as well as being home to local community performances and events.  Seasons of live cinema broadcasts will also feature in the programme.

On Monday 16 September 2019, Dame Judi Dench formally re-dedicated the Ashcroft Theatre at Croydon’s Fairfield Halls to her friend and Croydon-born fellow actress Dame Peggy Ashcroft. The award-winning actress unveiled the People’s Picture, a giant commemorative mosaic by artist Helen Marshall.
