Just 10 minutes from Clapham Junction or less than 20 minutes from London Victoria, The Lost Format Society is conveniently located right next to East Croydon station. With the coming together of three Croydon locals Farouk Deen, Justin Owens and Mark Sarfo, they aim to contribute to development of Croydon as a destination for entertainment and culture.

Farouk Deen, Co-Founder of The Croydon Creative said: “We were brought up here and understand Croydon’s heritage. We have been lucky enough to work with the local council in order to build this project and we’re excited to see progress already being made in the area with the BoxPark and Westfield heading our way. The Lost Format Society is our way of contributing to the regeneration, to revitalise the area and strengthen the community.”

The Lost Format Society is located at the top floor of the NCP Dingwall Road Car Park, Dingwall Road, London, CR0 0XH.

    How nice. Just park in the car park and take the lift up. Unfortunately, my back would not survive sitting on deckchairs and if I sat on one I would never be able to get up!
