I’ve always thought of culture and sport as very separate entities. (Although I know the government would beg to differ with their department combining them). At my school people were either arty or sporty – rarely both. So I have to say I’d never thought about theatre and cycling in the same sentence. That is until we met Amy and Vanessa from Croydon Bicycle Theatre.
Croydonist: First off, Croydon natives or converts?
Amy: Boomerangs, perhaps?
Croydonist: Which part of the borough do you call home?
Amy: Now, South Norwood, but my parents are still in the same house I grew up in in Coulsdon so I definitely feel I’ve started to get to know the different sides of the borough a lot better!
Vanessa: We both grew up in in the south of the borough and met at school. I live in Bermondsey, but my family and most of my friends are in Croydon. I wanted to come back because I missed it, so I was really pleased when Amy suggested we start CBT together!
Croydonist: Theatre and bikes seem like an unusual combination. Please explain.
