    Camden Fringe

    Can’t make it to Edinburgh this summer? Luckily we have our very own Camden  fringe festival on our doorstep.

    It’s a lot smaller than Edinburgh, but still boasts hundreds of events all over Camden, taking in everything from the expected stand-up sets and experimental theatre to kids’ shows, dance, and even magic.

    Runs tend to be for a night or two rather than the entire month, and prices are bargain basement by London standards, usually less than a tenner.
