Boxpark Croydon 1st Birthday
Location: Boxpark Croydon
We are going to be one year old! A year has flown by since we first opened our doors in October 2016 and we've hosted numerous events spanning grime raves to orchestra's, baby disco's to drum & bass workouts, regular jazz, poetry and open mic nights and a whole manor of events inbetween.
To mark the anniversary, we're hosting a day of live music as well as various other touch points across the space.
We'll be kick starting with Boxpark resident DJ and your host for the day, The Beat FM's Jay Knox kicking things off before welcoming some acoustic acts to the stage by way of Mayor of London's Gigs 2017, songwriting finalist Rosie Ash. She'll be followed by the extremely talented Joshua Kyeot.
We will have the pleasure of hosting not one but two of the BRIT schools hottest prospects on the day with the fantastic Bella Barton and the mesmorizing Aziya Aldridge-Moore performing originals as well as covers.
As we transition from afternoon to evening a number of live jazz bands set the tone with some smooth sounds and maybe a special guest or two.

To round things off, a Boxpark Croydon favourite, Hip Hop Karaoke welcomes people to live out their dreams of being a hip hop superstar.
