This is our 4th Year!

Purley Festival launched in 2011 and finished with a full day of fun and music of all genres.

In 2012 it grew into a much larger festival, finishing with a whole weekend and both a music and dance stage, acoustic tent, dedicated children’s area and much more. It attracted over 6000 visitors.  In 2013 we had thousands attend and a glorious sunny weekend packed with kids activities, sports activities and, of course, lots of great music.  In 2014 we managed to survive torrential rain for several hours on both days, and it was still a great success and fabulous festival.  The new Children’s Area was fantastic and the free circus skills and older kids activities seemed to go down well.

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. If you would like to get involved in the festival, please do get in touch.

Find out more on the Purley Festival Facebook Page.  We continue to share other local information and events on Twitter as well, whilst we are gearing up to our 5th year in 2015!
