Vision for Fairfield Halls at 50

Fairfield Halls in Croydon, celebrating its golden jubilee year, is set to host some new event types as part of council plans to inject fresh cultural life into central Croydon.

The council’s vision for Fairfield Halls, which it claims will create a vibrant mix of cultural, educational, residential and commercial uses and improve the appearance of the area, is embodied in the Fairfield Masterplan, drawn up following consultation with local groups.

The plans are separate from a £27m refurbishment of Fairfield Halls, but will mean a programme of outdoor events to complement those at the famous concert venue.
