Croydon seeks architect for cultural centre improvements

Fairfield Halls

Contest to be launched for public realm around concert hall

Croydon council is planning to hold a competition to find an architectural team to create a new setting for Fairfield Halls.

The concert and theatre venue is undergoing a £30m redevelopment which is due to complete next year.

In an effort to position central Croydon as a cultural destination, the council wants to improve the public realm around the venue and neighbouring Croydon College. The plan is to use the area known as Fair Field, or College Green, for cultural events and performances.
