Now in it’s fifth year, Croydonites Festival of New Theatre will present works over four intensive days between 26 and 29 March. It’s a mini version of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Croydon style.

The festival showcases fantastic British theatre, dance, comedy and performance and includes five commissions and six premieres. Croydonites continues to provide a platform for local artists, with six of the eleven shows originating in the borough. 

Offering something for all ages and tastes, this year our day passes invite audiences to try something different from a number of performances. 

Critical writing project CroydonWrites returns, along with more opportunities for participation. Will you submit a short film, a story or join us on the final night for a Ceilidh?
