its pretty good- just been down- pop along if you have time
Went along at 7:30
Actually already plenty of people looking around. Loudspeakers playing easy listening music. Curators in brown coats milling around. I heard them muttering about tasks they were supposed to perform, (art?) But thought it was too early.
The main windows were all fogged up so couldn't actually see much.

I saw it last night and thought it was excellent. Unfortunately I went at the same time as lots of people, and I wasn’t going to queue, but it was still worth the visit.

There are queues now? Blimey!
People were spending a long time looking at everything and taking photos, so they are not moving. I think that’s why there are queues. There were lots of people who stayed outside the cordon as well, which restricted our view, but it was better than queuing.

Yep, agree with all so far.
Think this is a really good thing for the town; found myself helping a few 'outsiders' navigate their way down to the 'shop'. Quite nice to chat to visitors to Croydon.

A couple of pieces & the security...

This one actually outside the 'shop' on the BT box thing on the pavement...

How long we giving that BT box when the folk in brown coats leave? Or do we reckon he will take it with him?

Surely it's a matter of minutes until someone nicks it?

Croydon hasn't changed that much.

Went past with the daughter this morning on the way to Lidl. She actually seemed to like it and was quite enthusiastic. One of the brown coats gave her a rolled up piece of A3 paper " something for the little one" , which turned out to be a banksy print. When we came out of the shop the queues were round the block. .wow.

Nice touch to hand prints to the youngsters:thumbs:

That queue...up towards Debenham's back door...with security control to get people in and out of Poundland!:eek:

This, in the Charity shop window, further down Church St. near Lidl, made me giggle:cool:

I read on Facebook that some people got posters and was wondering where they got them from, and I don’t think any of the Brown Coats has any rolled up ones when I was there.

Unfortunately - would have been delighted.

Although there was a queue when I went, don’t let it put you off. It’s still worth a look after dark, even if you can’t get close.

There was a modest queue on Saturday night when I popped along, but I just looked over over people's shoulders as I just wanted to get a beer.

Somehow the person in front of me ducked down every time I went to take a photo so it looks like I was right in front of it.

They are ringing the bells now but soon...

Did you not see ATOMIC SUPLEX post where they gave one to his daughter?
Yes, I did. That is the post I am responding to. I know of other people who report getting them, too, but I didn't know that it was ONLY for children.

Sorry if you think it was obvious and that I am the only person who didn't work it out. But that is how it is.

Or do you think I willfully posted to annoy?

Yeah, don't know if it was only for kids. Didn't see them holding loads of them to give out, just came up and said "something for the little one", that sounded like they were told to say it. The only other one I saw was stuffed into a baby's pram.

It was immediately after your post because that is the one that reminded me of the facebook posts about the posters, which is why I said it :)

I should have quoted your post for clarity, but I didn't. I thought it was pretty obvious that that is what I was doing though...

If it had been a better picture you would see yellow and blue around the tops of two of the towers, but they are to right. Could clearly see Crystal Palace transmitters, out of shot to left.
