Attend This: Camden Inspire – A New Free Street FestivalBy Iona Goulder
Camden Town is set to welcome a two-day street festival later this month. The brand new street festival coined Camden Inspire will host a series of activities, workshops, live music, film screenings and performances with the aim of reimagining how we use our high street and public spaces, running from September 17th-18th.
Camden Inspire: The Lowdown
Camden Open Air Gallery will be inviting attendees into its new arts space, Camden Collective will host film screenings and exhibitions whilst the surrounding streets will be completely pedestrianised hosting food, drink, arts and crafts with a mighty stage creating an outdoor venue.
Camden has long been known as a hub of creativity and Camden Inspire aims to shout about all that Camden has to offer London. Taking inspiration from all things local, this new street festival wants to create a new blueprint for a more activated and experience focused borough. The free launch event aims to celebrate its community of small businesses and the value they add to the neighbourhood. Taking place on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th September from 11am to 8pm.
Camden Inspire: Food and Drink
Currently confirmed local traders include Ma Petite Jamaica which was London’s first Caribbean diner. Created way back in 1985 and still going strong, they will be filling the air with all things jerk. Lost Boys Pizza who host a vampire-themed pizzeria just up the road will be creating a creepy pop up just for the event while non-profit shop Think Coffee will be providing a pop-up temporary tattoo parlour. Much more is yet to be announced with further music and food news coming shortly.
