First ever Croydon Green Fair tomorrow

Last year's Croydon Green Party stall at the Croydon Summer festival attended by 50,000 over two days

The first ever Croydon Green Fair will take place at the Bramley Hill Centre in Waddon on 28th May (tomorrow). The event has received good coverage in the local papers through letters and articles, and looks set to be a green cracker. The man behind the event is Andrew Dickinson. Andrew runs the Green Croydon web site. Croydon Green Party will of course be present at the event.

Many of the exhibitors and stallholders at the event periodically attend the excellent Croydon Summer Festival at Lloyd park, normally within The Green Village zone. The World Party, on the Saturday, has pulled in some excellent acts from around the world, including Candi Staton, The Lightning Seeds and De La Soul. Sadly as a result of the austerity measures, the council have pulled the plug on the Croydon Summer Festival this year. Therefore, full credit to Andrew for keeping the green flag flying in Croydon. From small acorns mighty oak trees grow; this might be the forerunner for an event to compare with Kingston Green Fair or the Carshalton Environmental Fair.

From memory, it seemed to rain nearly every year at the Croydon Summer Festival which put a damper on proceedings. No such risk at Croydon Green Fair - IT'S AN INDOOR EVENT!!!!!

Details of tomorrow's fair can be found here.

See you there!
