From the Wikipedia page [1]

Croydon Clocktower on Katharine Street in Croydon contains the Museum of Croydon, the Riesco Gallery with a collection of Chinese pottery and ceramics, a café and bar. The museum includes exhibits about the important black composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875–1912) who lived most of his life in Croydon.

The centre is owned and run by Croydon Council, and also houses Croydon's Central Library. The building links into the Town Hall and some areas of the building, most notably the Braithwaite Hall, are part of the original town hall and library complex, built in 1892–1896 to a design by Charles Henman Jun.[1] The Clocktower is the tower of the Town Hall. New buildings were built alongside the Town Hall and were opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1994.

The Clocktower also incorporates a Youth Ambassadors group, aimed at bringing more young people to the Clocktower. The Clocktower also used to include the David Lean Cinema, for art house and independent films, and the Braithwaite Hall, which was used for concerts, theatre and children's shows, until 2011 when its funding was cut by the Council, and it lost its Arts Council RFO status.
