Croydon has been the home of new music from almost every genre

Rewind: This is Croydon’s Music is a new exhibition that looks to unveil the rich history of music within the borough of Croydon, showcased at the Museum of Croydon.

Building on Croydon’s Music Heritage Trail from last summer, the exhibition celebrates the incredible music heritage of the borough through fascinating objects, images and stories collected within the local music community.

The exhibition includes photography, oral histories and objects from iconic artists spanning the eras – from the eminent Samuel Coleridge Taylor to Captain Sensible of The Damned, from dubstep idols Skream and Benga to international reggae star Desmond Dekker, and from Croydon’s much-loved singer the late Kirsty MacColl to ground-breaking rap and hip-hop artist Nadia Rose and many more!

To run alongside the exhibition, a varied series of events, including creative commissions, concerts and music events will take place at the Fairfield Halls, Museum of Croydon and more across the borough.
