Croydon’s Restaurant Quarter is preparing to host a day of tasty treats and family fun this Halloween.

The South End Family Funday will take place at Spice’s Yard Car Park on Sunday 28 October, from 11.00 am to 4.00 pm.

The fun day has been organised by South Croydon Business Association to provide visitors with samples from the area’s renowned restaurants.

It will have a Halloween theme and there will be street entertainment, fancy dress and face painting while there will also be a juggling workshop, children’s fun fair, rides and a bouncy castle.

Peter Bagatti, vice chairman of South Croydon Business Association, said: "Events like this are good for the area, both for the residents and the traders, because they help to change the perception of the area and showcase what South End has to offer."
