Croydon Creatives is a monthly gathering of web folk from in and around Croydon and further afield (current record distance travelled to a meet is ~160miles). An open and informal community of designers, developers and digital creatives who fancy a break from the screen and to chat about what we love. Talk about the web, print, typography and design. Talk about music, your hobbies or sport. Come along and have fun with fellow creatives.
If you’re interested, why don’t you come down and join us one evening?
In our search for a regular venue, we’ve happened across two decent establishments so we’ll alternate between the two. This month, we’re meeting at Matthews Yard, 1 Matthews Yard (off Surrey St), Croydon, CR0 1FF .
If you’re traveling by train, aim for East Croydon station (20 minutes from Victoria/London Bridge rail stations), come out of the main entrance of the station, turn right and walk down George St towards Croydon center (follow the tram tracks!). Walk past the pedestrianised high street on your right and down a small (but steep!) hill. Turn left after the KFC and walk up Surrey St. After 2 minutes, you’ll see a small pedestrianised lane on your right between two buildings called Matthews Yard. Walk down the lane and Matthews Yard is on your left .
If you’re coming by car, then the closest parking is Fairfield Halls Car Park. Take a look at this map for locations of the parking in the area and the meeting place.
Finally, if you’re coming via tram, you’ll want the George Street tram stop.
We send out emails every now and then to let you know when the next gathering or event will take place. If you want to receive these emails, all we need is your name and email address–the Twitter username is just so we can say hello :)
A list of people who’ve attended previous Croydon Creatives gatherings:
We love Lanyrd here, it’s a fantastic service for events and conferences which allows people to track or mark as attending each event as well as sharing details.
We set up an event on Lanyrd for every Croydon Creatives meet and we love it when new and old friends add their names to the list. If you’re planning on coming along to the next Croydon Creatives meet, please do pop your name down–all you need is your Twitter username!
