Platform 2

Our new performance space on the first floor is known as platform 2. This is a reference to the fact that there is no second platform at West Croydon Station, which was filled in to extend platform 3 in the 1990s. The space has an independent entrance or can be accessed through the cafe-bar. It is well suited to intimate gigs, comedy nights, theatre productions, birthday parties and other special occasions and has a maximum capacity of 50 people.

Our room features:

  • Stage
  • Basic LED lighting rig
  • House PA for background music 
  • 2 x Yamaha DBR10’s and Yamaha Desk for live music events 
  • Tables and chairs
  • Projector and Screen
  • Optional in-room bar
  • Optional independent access
  • Optional use of adjacent galley style prep kitchen

This room is perfect for theatre, performances, live music and special occasions. For large events like weddings or big birthday celebrations we recommend you consider exclusive venue hire.
