A £30 million makeover is transforming Croydon’s Fairfield Halls into a state of the art performance venue at the heart of a stunning new cultural quarter in Croydon.
The complete refurbishment of Fairfield Halls is the first stage in an ambitious regeneration of the Fairfield area, which will revitalise and reconnect this part of East Croydon with the rest of the town centre.
As a key part of Croydon’s £5.25 billion regeneration, Fairfield will become home to a vibrant new cultural quarter, creating a landmark destination for the arts in South London. The plans include a new, high-quality public space, a new college, a stunning 2000 m2 art gallery, niche retail and office space as well as much-needed homes – all with the new Fairfield Halls at its heart.
The plans for Fairfield Halls have been well-received, with design team, Rick Mather Architects winning the NLA (New London Architecture) award in the Conservation and Retrofit category in September.
Croydon Council’s development company, Brick by Brick, is now on site, with the refurbishment due to be completed in 2018. This site will provide all the information, news and updates on the modernisation of this historic venue, plus a guide to what’s on in Croydon while the Fairfield Halls is closed for refurbishment.
