About the festival

The Camden Fringe is a performing arts festival, established in 2006, which takes place in Camden during August.

Anyone and everyone is welcome to apply.

Previous fringe events have encompassed new writing, opera, musicals, stand-up, sketch comedy, dance, cabaret, poetry, opera, mentalism, improvisation and Q&As.

Shows take place throughout the day and generally last one hour.

The Camden Fringe was set-up as an alternative to Edinburgh Festival, offering performers the chance to try out new material and different ideas in a supportive setting with less time and financial commitments than EdFringe did at the time.

The Camden Fringe aims to give anyone the chance to perform and showcase their talents, from very experienced performers and companies, to ambitious newcomers.

Since 2006 the Camden Fringe has gained a reputation for supporting acts, providing helpful information and guidance for the acts involved.

The Camden Fringe was set-up and is still run by Zena Barrie and Michelle Flower.

As a duo they produced live shows at the Edinburgh Fringe from 2002 - 2006 and ran the Etcetera Theatre in Camden for 8 years from the beginning of 2004.
