The Ambition Festival

We had a brilliant weekend at Croydon’s Ambition Festival on the 25th and 26th of July. The Brick Box was commissioned by Croydon Council to explore how the previous car park outside Fairfield Halls could be transformed into a new outdoor hub for eating drinking and events.

We worked with local set designers to create a trailer park-themed bar and seating area and partnered with two very different South London-based projects to deliver a diverse line-up of arts activities. The Saturday programme featured a superhero themed arts festival produced in partnership with Maya Productions and featuring costume making, drama workshops, comic book drawing and live street art. On the Sunday we teamed up with Soca Picnic, who produce events inspired by Soca, the music of Caribbean carnival. The line up of Soca DJ’s, Steel Pan performances, Caribbean Food, picnic lawn and non stop dancing meant that we hardly noticed the rain.

Green Street Festival

Things are coming together with our plans for the Green Street Festival in Upton Park. We are looking forward to creating a superhero-themed day of activities and performances. Reveal your inner superhero and release your power moves with Maya Productions, discover the wonders of the Kazoo or the mysteries behind the Orisha Gods.

We are happy to announce that there will be a very special performance by Boy Blue Entertainment, so it’s sure to be a day that packs a punch! What better way to spend your Bank Holiday Monday than celebrating with us at the thriving Queens Market in Green Street with some fun and games. More workshops to be announced soon!
