Ambition Festival offers narrow range of events
The Council’s Town Centre Ambition Festival (23-26 July) is to offer a narrow range of events centred around a ‘contemporary mainstream culture image’. Several offers of events which do not fit this image have been turned down. For a discussion about the issues involved in mounting this Festival see

Discover a world of published academic research at your local library – but not in Croydon
If you live in Croydon you are unable to take advantage of the free search facility for over 10 million academic articles free of charge because Croydon has not signed up its libraries to the service. Since February students, independent researchers and small businesses in many other areas have had access to many of the world’s best academic papers, a result of a unique collaboration between librarians and publishers, who have made their journal content available for free.
