Events in Croydon and Surrey for 2016

Purley Festival launched in 2011 and involved a borrowed stage and a few hundred people turning up. Now we have 2, 3 or sometimes 4 stages and thousands of people come!

We cover the whole weekend and with live music, acoustic tent, dedicated children’s area and much more.

Purley Festival is a week of activities for all ages and interests, in and around Purley, near Croydon, Surrey followed by

a Festival Finale weekend. The finale showcases local music and dance, stalls, businesses, charities, entertainment and more on the Rotary Fields between Purley and South Croydon. 

I’m Head of Social Media and input into marketing and other areas of the festival.  I’ve been on the committee for Purley Festival since it started and will become a Trustee and Director of the CIC if that goes through in 2016.  If you would like to get involved in the festival, please do get in touch.  There are opportunities for clubs, businesses and local people to get involved, promote what they do, advertise, volunteer and sponsor activities and the whole festival!

Find out more and see photos via the Purley Festival Facebook Page

We also share other local information and events from our Twitter  account as well.

Back from 26th June to 2nd July 2017!

“Slowly starting to get to grips with my Facebook page, still lots to learn. Wendy's course on it (Get Better Coaching) was definitely worth the investment.”

Croydon Tweetups

at Matthews Yard

Organised by Wendy Ager

Normally on a Weds eve at Matthews Yard, Croydon from 7.30pm

There are plenty of business networking events in Surrey and Croydon so this is an opportunity to meet up socially.

See my Facebook Events for more details, photos and next date, as it gets added.

SurreyWISE was a funded project in 2015 enabling 100 women across Surrey to become more digitally confident. 

Working with Penny Power OBE, of Digital Business Britain, as one of the Digital Coaches we worked to improve digital confidence using LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and more.

“It has far superseded anything I was expecting from the course. Yes I have learnt lots of great things about Facebook and Twitter but more importantly than that I have grown in confidence and feel empowered.”

“I'm from Wendy's Group.  The best part is the opportunity not just to learn about social media, but to experiment with making it work for our businesses in such a supportive environment.  Wendy has given me sufficient knowledge to enable me to feel confident in exploring the different social media opportunities, and to work out what would work best for my business.”
