CODA are excited to be returning to Wandle Park with a specially adapted version of Lewis Carroll’s tales Alice In Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass.

This play charts the adventures of Alice as she descends into a world of madness, curiosity, challenge, and don’t forget the tea. Alice will guide you through the wonders she finds and let you decide if what she finds is real or just a dream.

With Croydon being the 2023 London Borough of Culture, CODA are privileged to be working with the Mayor Of London’s office to to help further achieve our charitable goals by making the arts more accessible for all. CODA have been successful in receiving funding to help create this show in part with a commitment to add British Sign Language to some of its performances. More information to follow.

CODA have been successful in receiving funding through the Mayor of London’s Borough of Culture 2023 scheme to help stage this show. Please find more information about the scheme below.

London Borough of Culture

The Mayor’s London Borough of Culture award, launched in June 2017, brings Londoners together. It puts culture at the heart of local communities, where it belongs, illuminating the character and diversity of London’s boroughs and showing culture is for everyone, giving all Londoners a chance to be part of something extraordinary.

This is Croydon

The programme for London Borough of Culture 2023, This Is Croydon, will be a celebration of everything Croydon has to offer – created, directed and presented by the people of the borough. From major events with internationally renowned artists performing alongside home-grown talent, to dozens of cultural activities from Croydon’s diverse creative communities, the programme will showcase the very best of Croydon to London and the world.

This is Croydon… and you’re welcome. @culturecroydon #ThisisCroydon #CultureCroydon
