This Autumn, join us for a spectacular season of dance and theatre.

Summer might be over, but it’s Festival Season at Stanley Arts.

We’re presenting two shows as part of Dance Umbrella Festival, London’s major international dance festival. In Family (dys)Function (21 Oct), resident company Birdgang Ltd bring together an intergenerational cast from the communities of Croydon. For ages 3+ there’s Xenia Aidonopoulou: Skydiver (22 Oct), a multi-sensory dance experience for families.

We have a family friendly Diwali Festival Extravaganza (11 Nov) which promises an unforgettable day filled with live music and vibrant performances, captivating craft and dance workshops, enchanting storytelling sessions, and of course, delicious South Asian food.
