Boxpark Croydon Reveals Final Line-Up Ahead Of 31st October Opening

Boxpark Croydon officially opened on Monday 31 October 2016, the brain child of Boxpark who launched the first pop-up fashion mall in Shoreditch in 2011. The difference with the Croydon site is it focuses solely on food and drink, with the motto 'Eat. Drink. Play'.
 
 
Designed by architectural firm BDP, Boxpark Croydon isn't just about the food and drink. Each week, it will be playing host to a variety of innovative events featuring a selection of local talent, as well as big name artists and DJs. Visitors can expect everything from festive celebrations, acoustic afternoons and top DJs to a selection of workshops for people of all ages. 
 
 
The development sits directly alongside East Croydon station, meaning that it's easily accessible for visitors coming in from London, the south coast and further afield. The site is also walking distance from West Croydon station where the overground line runs. 
 
Boxpark is home to more than 30 tenants on site in the iconic black, repurposed shipping containers, spanning across two floors. The site also features its very own fully stocked, bar – BoxBar – sponsored by Coors Light. The bar offers a selection of drinks from beers, ciders, mixers and signature cocktails and the 300 capacity bar space will also host regular events; some of them featuring Boxpark's resident DJs. Overall, Boxpark Croydon has a massive 2000 capacity space. 
 
 
Boxpark's creator and CEO, Roger Wade, says: 'I’m delighted to announce the opening of Boxpark Croydon, our first food and drink only retail development. I would like to personally thank Croydon Council, Schroders, GLA and most importantly the local Croydon community for their support. I was born and bred in South London, and it's great to build a world-class development in my local area. We are not building this IN Croydon, we are building for Croydon!'
