Boxspeak is a brand new mini-feature where we get to know the visitors, customers and partygoers who help to make Boxpark such a fun place to be. This week, we caught up with Lauren Gwinnett from Streatham to get her take on her Boxpark Croydon experience.
Hi Lauren, tell us a little bit about you.
I am a lovely, bubbly person who works in Sale and Marketing within the construction industry.
What brought you to Boxpark Croydon?
I came for the Splurgeboys x PAP event in the BoxBar. I really wanted to see The Manor! It was actually my first ever visit to Boxpark Croydon!
What were your first impressions when you arrived?
It was really buzzing! I was surprised at the energy considering it was a Thursday night, there were so many people dining, drinking and dancing.
Did you try any of the food yourself?
I didn't, this time, but I did really want to. I'd love to try them all, there's so much choice, I've got my eye on Bao Bao for my next visit. Their menu looks amazing!
What did you make of the BoxBar as an events space?
The sound system is excellent! The bass really carried which was perfect for that kind of event. The space overall is really good. The lighting is cool and there's such a good vibe.
Can you sum up your Boxpark experience in 3 words?
I'd say it was fresh, choice and lively!
Finally, what was the last song you listened to?
