A creative arts school in Croydon is celebrating its 25th year anniversary by hosting a festival with performances from former pupils.

The BRIT School was established in 1991 as a free educator of performing arts for 14 to 19 year olds.

Famous alumni from the school include Adele, Jessie J, Kate Nash, Leona Lewis, Rizzle Kicks and the new Spider-man actor, Tom Holland.

Back to BRIT, the name of the festival, will be held at the school based in The Crescent in Selhurst, Croydon from 11am on Saturday (July 15)

“There is Glastonbury, Reading and Edinburgh Festivals. And now there’s Selhurst,” said school Principal Stuart Worden.

Performers will include Imogen Heap, Natalie Stewart from Floetry, comedy group Mandem on the Wall, Britian’s Got Talent finalist dancers Twist and Pulse, Khronos Agoria (another former BTG member), actress Cush Jumbo from The Good Wife and Radio 1xtra DJ Ace and Kiss FM’s DJ Freddie Smith.

The Principal added: “This is a wonderful way to bring the 25th anniversary year to its conclusion. It will be a festival that will celebrate students’ creativity and extraordinary diversity across all the art forms.

“This School that, over the last four years, has delivered 99 per cent of its students either into jobs or higher education, has played a significant part in that success of the creative economy which is the fastest growing sector for ‘UK plc'. As Principal I am immensely proud of that achievement and our student’s success.”

There will be various stages across the festival with event supplier PRG donating technical equipment for the day.

Development Director for PRG, John McEvey, said: “As one of the longest serving sponsors of The BRIT School, we're delighted to be supporting the Back to BRIT Festival celebrating 25 years of the school.

“Over the years, we've seen some great students graduate from the school and go on to have exciting and rewarding careers in the live event industry, many of whom have worked for us, and we hope this success continues for years to come.”

Tickets for the event cost £25 with proceedings going to The Brit Silver Fundraising Campaign where money is invested into the people, places and productions of the school.
