For a quarter of a century, Camden People’s Theatre has occupied a landmark former pub on the corner of Hampstead Road and Drummond Street.
Since its inception back in 1994 – when a group of locals took on the Camden Council-owned venue to create an affordable local theatre – it has transformed into a stalwart of the capital’s fringe scene.
In our new winter 2019 issue, out today, we chat with artistic director Brian Logan about how the venue is a necessary incubator for unconventional playwrights. And we commemorate its stirling work over the years with the above image by Kentish Town’s enigmatic Secret Artist NW5.
There’s another birthday this issue: ours. We celebrate our second anniversary with ten images that capture the spirit of the area.
Elsewhere, we pop to a kickboxing class and check out both Drummond Street’s nitrogen ice-cream parlour Milkman and new restaurant VQ. We even visit Magic Circle impressario Jake Banfield – to see if he’ll impart a few tricks up his sleeve.
