What’s with the pigeon? Camden Fringe’s famous avian mascot this year pays tribute to British actor Olivia Colman for her Oscar-winning turn in the film The Favourite. The full programme for the 2019 festival features over 300 shows running across 30 different London venues between 29 July and 25 August 2019. How many can you squeeze in? Time to get booking!
The annual Camden Fringe festival is now in its 14th year, offering London its very own dose of fringe fun. The 2019 line-up includes scores of new plays as well as comic talent such as Sean McLoughlin, Lloyd Langford and Holly Burn presenting new shows, placing Camden Fringe as an increasingly appealing choice for fringe performers in August. Taking place across 30 venues in the borough, the festival brings masses of fresh talent to Camden with most shows less than a tenner.
Never failing to offer shows and genres you didn’t know existed, this year sees classical and opera-themed shows, parent-child collaborations including Howard Read performing with his two children, and of course, a healthy dose of politics, with everything from Bo-Jo satire Boris Rex to the return of The Eurosceptic Song Contest.
Michelle Flower, co-founder of the festival, commented:
“This is the 14th year of the Camden Fringe, and it’s great that even now there are new venues, productions and concepts for us to engage with. This year we have a one on one walking tour which will link Covent Garden and Cairo as well as the usual mix of theatre and comedy.
“We’re also delighted to have The Chapel Playhouse as a venue. One of the co-founders, Velenzia Spearpoint, has been involved with the Camden Fringe since 2007 through Get Over It Productions, who are returning this season for an unprecedented 13th year.”
Other notable acts include the return of hit company Moonchild with their new show Faeries, Singapore company FK Co-Lab’s The Cardboard Kitchen Project and Little Britain’s Joann Condon’s new show Little Boxes.
