Learn the history of the Croydon Advertiser

It's almost the end of Croydon Heritage Festival already, and sadly your author didn't really notice it happening, but thanks to Kake for tipping us off that tonight fans of local newspapers can enjoy a special event that charts the history of the Croydon Advertiser through the eyes of editor Glenn Ebrey.

We are told that the Advertiser is Croydon’s oldest newspaper, having been covering local events for some 145 years since it was founded by Jesse Ward in 1869.
