Croydon Food and Music Festival is returning for an eighth year with "an even wider range of international cuisine."

More than 12,000 people attended the free event last year, which is again based in Croydon's Restaurant Quarter.

On June 23, the South End site will be closed to traffic, making space for over 90 street food stalls, live music stages and street performers.

Restaurateur Peter Bagatti, of the South Croydon Business Association, said: “I am proud to say this is now our eighth year of the Croydon Food & Music Festival.

"It has developed massively since it started in 2012 with triple the amount of people and stalls than we had back then.

"But most importantly, it’s now recognised and enjoyed as a fantastic day out for the whole community.”

The event runs from 12-7pm, allowing festival-goers to dine on outside tables throughout the day.

Local venue Hoodoos is hosting a stage, with folk, rock, jazz and blues acts set to perform.
