Croydonites is a festival of new theatre and performance for Croydon. Its mission is to showcase local theatre makers, and bring some of the best contemporary performance work from around the UK to CR0 doorsteps. The inaugural event took place in November 2015 when four companies presented work at two venues. The 4th edition took place in May 2019 and featured nine artists over four weeks in five venues. It has become a fixed event on Croydon's Cultural Calendar and regularly commissions new work by local artists. In 2020 it will present the 5th edition.
