This summer sees the seventh Camden Fringe festival return to London, from 30th July until the 26th August, across 14 London venues. This growing event offers a variety of performances and there is something to interest and entertain everyone!
After huge success in 2011, the Camden Fringe has returned to promote local creative talent. Types of cultural entertainment that will be featured include theatre, dance, comedy, and poetry and there are over 400 performances taking place across North London throughout the event. Millennium & Copthorne Hotels have several hotels near Earls Court all within easy reach of the festival, making them the ideal place to relax after a fun day out.
Modern adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays will be performed, alongside opera shows and dance pieces from the Tarangano Theatre. Each event is either paid for individually or free of charge, and the festival aims to give as many people as possible the opportunity to showcase their talents. The festival is becoming more and more popular, and a past review by the Guardian commented “A David has emerged to challenge the Edinburgh Goliath: the Camden Fringe.”
This connection could be related to the fact that the Camden Fringe was set up by Zena Barrie and Michelle Flower, who produced comedy at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for four years. They then started running the Etcetera Theatre so visitors to this event will know that they are in good hands!
The venues of the Camden Fringe this year stretch from Highgate, through to Camden town and Covent Garden, with each venue providing a unique and interesting performance.
If you are visiting the capital to go to the Camden Fringe 2012, Millennium & Copthorne’s London hotels would provide the perfect place to stay, all in the popular districts of Kensington, Chelsea, Knightsbridge and Mayfair and close to transport links and top sights and attractions.
