London Borough of Croydon

Ashburton Park Winter Festival - Friday 8 December - Tuesday 2 January

More details in the flyer available to download below.

In Croydon, we have a number of hidden gems, one being the former convent library building in Ashburton Park. This attractive building which was built in 1882, has become a real landmark in the area and something that local people and park users wanted to see brought back to life.

After significant council investment, the building has had a complete makeover and this big space, with so much potential, is now available for community groups to hire.

New management arrangements

From November 2017 to 28 February 2018, Deshi Arts will be managing the building and Ashburton Hall will become a vibrant, create space for artists, performers and teachers, offering music and performance arts opportunities as well as classes for local residents’.

Read more about Deshi Arts in our press release.

From March 2018, the permanent operators, GLL will take over running the building.
