Street food and cocktails, whilst it's a nice idea it's usually packed with twits so just a bunch of kettled hipsters in their shipping container mecca.

I'm going on Tuesday evening. Looking forward to it.

An article on it in the latest Private Eye. After their election in Croydon, the Labour Party promised a free music festival every year in the area. Sadly, this has now become Boxpark and they are subsidised by the council to the tune of some 180,000.

Hopefully this subsidy means cheaper rents for new local businesses. Will check out the Cronx Bar when next in the area.

Croydon isn't bourgeois enough. Although driving home from the match tonight the East Croydon area looks like a gigantic building site.

Is this Boxpark permanent or just until they start some "luxury" flats or office complex? I think they're building a Boxpark thing at the Elephant too. In five years they'll be two a penny.

I must say when you put it like that, it does sound appealing

... Rather underwhelmed by what I've seen of the Shoreditch version though.
