When I say street, you say festival… Doesn’t have the same ring to it when written on the page, but we can say from experience that it does translate in person. So it’s a good thing that this street festival is returning for a two-day bonanza in Camden this weekend.
On September 2 – 3, north London will play host to Camden Inspire, which made its debut in the city back in 2021, treating attendees to workshops, activities, live theatre, DJs, and much more. The festival is back for its third year and will be taking over Camden’s Buck Street and Stucley Place this coming weekend.
Camden Inspire hopes to enhance the feel of community within the borough, while helping promote small local businesses, with a pedestrianised. Expect everything from face painting and food stalls to spoken word poetry and street art.
One moment you could be taking part in a mosaic workshop or learning some circus skills, and the next you could heading over to the park and listening to some live music or learning how to make dolls with a needle and pin. Yep, this festival sounds just the right level of chaos.
Any great festival is bound to have a delightful array of food, and Camden Inspire is no different. Expect the likes of Filili Nepalese dumplings, THINK Coffee, True Romance Pizza, and many, many more local food traders.
Simon Pitkeathley CEO of Camden Town Unlimited said:
Camden Inspire is an ambitious event celebrating all that makes Camden Town unique. We are once again partnering with Camden Open Air Gallery in taking over Buck Street and Stucley Place for two days of the neighbourhood’s music, food, performance and art – showing the huge potential in activating public space and the future of our high streets.
