Pollock’s Toy Museum Pop Up

A day of free theatre performances and activities for all the family.

Exclusive to Croydon is a display of toys made in the local factory A Barton who were based in New Addington from the 50s-80s. The grand opening on Saturday 20 January will feature special live toy theatre performances for all the family.

You can also see Tri-ang toys made by the Lines Bros in their nearby Merton Factory, listen to the Victorian Polyphon, buy unique Pollock papers and cards; hear stories about the toys and chat with the museum team about your toy memories. Volunteers will be on hand to show you some of the highlights of the collection which will be on display, including items made and designed in the Croydon area.

The museum will be open regularly every Saturday, 10-4pm.
