Croydon BID and Croydon Council are launching ‘Street Live’ to offer live music, dance and theatre, transforming the High Street into a hive of activity for all ages. The programme will deliver 48 days of activity from June to September, offering something a little different for shoppers, diners and those passing by.
As part of the programme, ‘Street Live’ will be working with Scanners Inc. to deliver events aimed at getting you involved this summer. Join the team for Folk Dance remixed – a fresh, quirky, colourful and magical collision of traditional English Folk and Hip Hop dance and music. Closely followed is Inverted Company and Simple Cypher, renowned artists who will perform dazzling tricks and feats of human strength.
Fit Street will bring exercise to the streets of Croydon, with yoga, hit sessions, hula-hoop waist toning and meditation.
Cllr Oliver Lewis, cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport said: “Our commitment to the arts, music and culture continues as we support the Street Live event series aimed at offering something for everyone this summer. The High Street is the perfect venue for people to enjoy some truly talented acts.”
Accompanied by the recently-announced Wimbledon Screen showing you all the tennis action during the first two weeks of July, ‘Street Live’ is the ideal opportunity to enjoy all the action right in the town centre.
Street Live welcomes sessions from Beats and Eats, a new Busk Stop introducing some of our finest musical talent, workshops from Human Zoo Theatre Company, and the much-loved pop up music gig, Crowd.
Matthew Sims, Chief Executive of Croydon BID said: “Street Live is a wonderfully diverse and rich programme of events designed to offer something for everyone. In doing so, we very much hope to support our businesses in attracting those that live, work and visit the town centre. What is clear is that this summer, Croydon town centre has a lot to offer.”
