This autumn in Croydon will once again be a busy time for residents. There's a lot going on, and probably not enough time in our diaries to fit it all in!
I've compiled a little list of some notable bits and pieces, but also check out our Croydon Events page for other things to get you out and about.
"36 Croydon Views" - Art Exhibition by CALAT
14 September - 2 October 9.30am - 5pm
Open to all, it showcases the work of three different groups of Croydon Adult Leaners who attend one of CALAT's Drawing and Painting Classes at Croydon High Street or at Smitham in Coulsdon.
The challenge of this project was for the learners to paint using only one colour looking at Croydon environments based on their own sketches and photos.
