A Little About This Space

Launched back in June 2014, Platform is a project set up in Croydon with the aim of contributing to the area’s developing culture. Located in Ruskin Square, this space is a large outdoor area where you can hold a branded event or collaborate to host a unique affair that the local community can enjoy.

The outdoor space forms the walkway between East Croydon station and the roundabout on Landsdowne Road and Dingwall Road. It’s a very busy area with impressive footfall, being right next to one of the busiest non-terminal rail stations in London. Previous events have included a ping pong festival, Wimbledon screenings, and an urban beach installation, so as you can see, the possibilities are endless.

Hosting regular events such as sports events and weekly food markets, Ruskin Square is gaining a reputation as a go-to destination in itself. This site is a public space where local talent can be showcased to the crowds of South London.
