PLANS are continuing to progress for the first Croydon Heritage Festival this summer.

The Whitgift Foundation is presenting the inaugural festival from June 3 to 23 as a "celebration of past and present".

People of all ages will be able to get involved in a wide variety of events and activities during the festival, including photographic exhibitions, donning period costume, short-film competitions, historic tours and expert talks.

The centrepiece will be a major town centre event taking place in North End on Saturday, June 8, from 11am to 4pm, as well as the South End Food Festival.

Martin Corney, clerk of the Whitgift Foundation, said: "With Westfield and Hammerson about to build a new £1billion shopping centre in the heart of Croydon our town is looking forward to a bright future, so there is no better time to celebrate its rich and colourful past.

"We are excited by the prospect of facilitating a programme of events from across the wider Croydon community because the town and borough has so much that is worth celebrating for the enjoyment of people of all ages."
