Fairfield Halls is South London’s largest arts centre and following a multi-million-pound redevelopment will be at the heart of Croydon’s new Cultural and Education Quarter.

The centre houses a playhouse, concert hall, studio spaces, rehearsal rooms, restaurants, bars and business lounge. Offering a wide range of performances and facilities including classical performances, concerts, comedy, drama, community shows, conferences, weddings and events.

Designed as a scaled down version of the Royal Festival Hall, (both venues shared the same acoustic consultant, Hope Begenal), Fairfield Halls Phoenix Concert Hall is recognised internationally for its fantastic and bright acoustics and has “…some of the finest acoustics in Europe” as stated by renowned conductor Leopold Stokowski.

The Phoenix Concert Hall will once again play host to the London Mozart players as resident Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the English Chamber Orchestra.

Sir Simon Rattle said “The astonishingly brilliant musicians in London deserve to have a hall as good as Fairfield Halls in Croydon” and with this in mind we will open our Phoenix Piano Academy in September, training the next generation of pianists.
