Finding Out About Events

The publicity for events in Croydon is very fragmented. The booking site Event Brite does enable all events posted on it in Croydon to be seen together at–london/croydon

Now Croydon is more difficult to use because it includes events outside Croydon.

Just Croydon

The Just Croydon website of events initiated by the former Croydon Arts Network has been dormant for the last few months. An April event has been posted which is a reminder to all running on-line and hopefully live events later this year to use this site. It can also be used to post things you want to buy and sell, news items, etc.
