The 17th Camden Fringe took place 31st July – 27th August 2023

Over 300 productions took part, making it our biggest festival yet. This was the usual mix of the weird and the wonderful taking place at some of London’s best small venues in North London.

We are currently tying up all the loose end from 2023 before we start thinking about 2024. Applications will open in January.

Now rivalling the once all-conquering Edinburgh, Camden Fringe has become an essential showcase for new talent whether in performing, directing, or writing.

The Camden Fringe Festival is a golden opportunity for the London crowd to discover little gems of theatre scattered around the city and get closer to smaller theatre companies’ creative craft.

The Upcoming, 2022

Edinburgh isn’t the only place with a bursting, brilliant fringe, and indeed as the Scottish capital’s iconic event becomes ever more expensive, the once scrappy outsider Camden Fringe looks ever more like a serious contender. It’s smaller than Edinburgh by a long shot, 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.

Time Out, 2022

The Camden Fringe is the closest thing we have to a London Comedy Festival.
