Join us in Trumble Gardens to see Lumiere London’s extraordinary Nightlife commission, with life size light installations of wildlife and flowers, created by Jo Pocock and the Lantern Company.
In 2018 Lumiere London – the outdoor arts event produced by arts charity Artichoke featuring creations from more than 40 light installations – returns over four nights between 18th and 21st January with works exhibited both north and south of the River Thames.
The following week on Saturday 27th January, some of the lanterns from the Leicester Square installations will transfer to Trumble Gardens on Brigstock Road and will include an evening of performances of song and dance showcasing home-grown talent. Find out who all the local artists are that are performing on the evening.
After a successful launch event in December, the second CR7 Market organised by the Thornton Heath Community Action Team returns on 27 January with a bustling street market and the addition of an Open Mic session.
The CR7 Market will take place opposite Thornton Heath train station and the unique aspect of this market is its focus on “makers”. Local artisans, artists and craft people will take stalls, giving visitors plenty to browse and buy, with many of the products on offer being handcrafted. Think ceramics, printed t-shirts, vinyl, jewellery, natural skin products and mosaics as well as hot food and sweet and savoury snacks.
Adding to the atmosphere will be an Open Mic session with Croydon’s finest up and coming singers and MC’s invited to take to the stage. Sponsored by CR7 Culture there will be a prize for the best artist as voted for by the community.
