"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 Halls 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)

It's 40 years since the Warehouse was founded.
And for ten of those years Dick Barton and his adventures
occupied the stage at this time of year.
Here are Darrell Brockis as Jock, George Asprey as Dick
and William Oxborrow as Snowy in
Dick Barton and The Tango of Terror
- all made In Croydon.
