You Can Watch Plays For Free In This 10-Seater Caravan In Kensington

The very first Kensington Karavan Festival is coming to Notting Hill this month, showing free plays inside a 1950s vintage caravan. 

Brand new plays have been written especially for the festival in this tiny 10-seat theatre, which Small Truth Theatre Company said really is “like a Tardis.” (Featured image: @smalltruththeatre)

It is going to be cosy for sure, but performances are set to be short and sweet, each lasting around 20 minutes.

If you love the show and 20 minutes isn’t enough (which, in this cool and quirky setting, is almost a certainty) there will be a selection of eight plays to choose from, written by some of the UK’s most diverse, award-winning playwrights.

Shows will be running every half an hour throughout festival days, so no chance of missing any.

This “tiny theatre with a big heart” is coming to Portobello Road to showcase stories inspired by the streets of Kensington itself, with play titles including ‘Spirit of Carnival’ by Emma Dennis-Edwards, ‘Under The Bridge’ by Olivia Mace and ‘Disruption’ by Sig Sugar.

The Kensington Karavan will park up on Portobello Road in just a few weeks’ time, with performances running on September 21-22 and 28-29, and again on October 12-13.

And if that isn’t enough for you, we’re going to be blessed with some winter performances, with even more dates being added in December!
