The locals were out in force for to embrace the beginning of the festive season at BOXPARK Croydon.
DJ Jay Knox warmed things up followed by a preview performance from the cast of local theatre production Dick Whittington, featuring Big Mike's daughter Dani Springer.
As we closed in on the countdown to the light switch-on, the crowd were treated to live performance from Croydon rapper Jords and a live band. Croydon's first ever Miss GB of colour made a special appearance and marked the occasion by switching on the lights with Jords, sending Croydon into a Crimbo spectacular.
