Green shoots at the Fairfield?


After months of a dark, closed building and some adverse publicity, there have been signs of life resuming at the Fairfield Halls. Croydon Council indicated that while the main Halls were closed due to Covid-19, some community activities might resume. For a start, Savvy Theatre Company, one of the resident companies at the Fairfield, plans to start drama classes for teenagers on September 17, for 13 weeks. Two days later they will start drama classes for younger participants, also running for 13 weeks. Then an email arrived, advertising new events. It’s only three events and all are in 2021, but it is encouraging news and hopefully there will be more to come, giving us all something to look forward to.
