As Croydon approaches its year as Borough of Culture, we’re presenting a season at Fairfield Halls which celebrates the borough’s community, history and artistic presence.
From October 2022 to June 2023, we’ll be taking to the stage with performances from young musical superstars, including cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason and organist Anna Lapwood, and renowned choirs including the Royal Choral Society. Ranging from a video game concert, including live actors and an hour-long cut of the gameplay, to an immersive staging in the Round which puts you, the audience, in a ring around the orchestra to see the work from all angles, our season has something for everyone.
