A new pop up event space launching in the heart of Croydon town with headline music from HACKNEY COLLIERY BAND plus DJs from the Street Cocktail Sound System, bars and street food on Friday 21st October 2016.

Croydon gets it’s newest pop up event space with CROWD launching in St Georges Walk, bringing live music and DJs to the heart of Croydon in an exciting new series of free to attend events.

The big CROWD launch party on Friday 21st October sees the funked-up, big brass, dance vibes of Hackney Colliery Band lead the way with two live sets, supported by the Street Cocktails Sound System DJs playing all vinyl sets and specialising in funk, break beats and good times tunes.

Hackney Colliery Band have had a phenomenal few years. From playing a 45minute set at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics and sets at the MOBO, Brit and Mercury Awards to selling out clubs across Europe, constantly touring and always with a packed festival schedule, these east London musicians haven’t stopped. A funky New Orleans-style line up of trumpets, trombones, saxes, sousaphone and two drummers, comes together to deliver a diverse mixture of funk, hip-hop, high-octane rock and contemporary jazz.

Add in two bars (one for craft beers and another featuring the unique spin on flavours that only the Street Cocktail crew can deliver) plus a feast of street food from a variety of local favourite vendors (including Monster Chefs, Fat Thursdays, Bobskis, Roti Master and Munchos), then CROWD is set to quickly establish itself as an exciting fixture in the Croydon night time calendar.

Location: South end of St Georges Walk, Croydon, access from The High Street opposite Grants VUE Cinema.

Timings: 4.30pm to 9.30pm. Hackney Colliery Band on stage at 6.00pm and 7.30pm (NB band timings are approximate).

Entry: FREE

Age limit: Over 18s only
