"Now I know where my little corner of Boxpark is,
I would still rather a pint and sandwich from the Warehouse
Theatre’s bar though. I remain in mourning for its loss"
Rob Preston in 'Croydon Citizen'
"They lied about the Warehouse –
closed it down and nothing more was ever done to help it find
a new and better home".

The Croydon Citizen - Liz Sheppard Jones 22/11/17:
Recreation: We need to maintain and restore the range of local amenities for which
Croydon is justly renowned– the closure of the Fairfield Hall and the Ashcroft Theatre
has pulled a pall over a great entertainment venue.
(The hoardings surrounding the re-building works bear the name ‘the Cultural Quarter’.
This is an ironical misnomer – a more honest and accurate name would be
‘the Cultural Vacuum’.) The town centre remains in a state of suspended animation.
When will the Warehouse Theatre find its rightful new home?
Pop-up performances at the Spread Eagle and Matthew’s Yard
provide an engaging but inadequate stop-gap in a town which has had
an illustrious history and variety of theatres.
Barnaby Jones' article in the Croydon Citizen (12/03/18)
