Welcome to the Croydon Performing Arts Festival

The Croydon Performing Arts Festival is a large performing arts festival, giving performers the chance to compete in all forms of music, South Asian music, dance, speech and drama and South Asian dance.

If you are a dancer or a singer or play an instrument; if you are a member of a choir or conduct one; if you play in a band or music group or if you recite prose or poetry or like drama sketches - this is your opportunity to show what you can do and have a lot of fun doing it. It makes no difference whether you are young or old, a beginner or an experienced musician, dancer or speaker, you will find a suitable class for your talents in our festival.
