Welcome to Now Croydon. Here you will find daily suggestions of things related to Croydon. Articles, events, volunteering opportunities, news, what's on at our independent cinemas and theatres plus much more. It's been created by Tim Longhurst.
Croydon is not without it's problems. But there's so much more to this London borough than concrete and crime. The history, the diverse mix of people and the wealth of places to see and things to do make Croydon a great place to live, work or visit. And there are the individuals and groups who are making a practical difference to Croydon life.
Check out the what's on calendar to see what's happening locally. Events are hand picked by me, submitted directly by visitors to this site or collated automatically from our local cinemas, theatres, community ventures and other Croydon-based groups on the web. This site brings everything together in one central calendar.
You can also watch my short promo videos that highlight community groups, voluntary organisations, intiatives, events and other items of interest or relevance to Croydon and surrounding areas.
Lastly, you can skim the news headlines from Croydon's media and blogs, all in one place.
If you have something going on in or near Croydon and it's not already listed, you can get it featured quickly, easily and for free.
