Camden People’s Theatre is the place to go for new, cutting-edge theatre. Occupying a former pub on Hampstead Road, this North London theatre specialises in new writing and innovative productions. It focuses on supporting artists early in their careers with something to say about the times we live in. You can find the best tickets for Camden People's Theatre events here at TickX.
Camden People’s Theatre was created in 1994 by an artists’ collective. It aimed to produce globally flavoured theatre at affordable prices. Since 1997, the theatre has programmed the annual Sprint festival, London’s biggest festival for new, unconventional theatre. CPT is especially good at attracting young people both to perform and spectate at the venue. The theatre has a reputation for nurturing young and emerging artists. Two-thirds of its audiences are also under the age of 35.
CPT is rightly proud of its innovative, imaginative programming. CPT’s recent successes include the annual feminist performance festival Calm Down, Dear, the Amnesty Award-winning domestic violence-themed event Our Glass House, and Fog Everywhere, an in-house show addressing London’s air pollution. The theatre's ambitious, risk-taking shows were one of the reasons that it was nominated Best Fringe Theatre in The Stage Awards.
CPT’s black-box studio theatre only holds 60 people, placing the audience right at the heart of the action. However, the theatre’s basement rehearsal space also hosts events and workshops. Visitors can always chat over a drink before or after a performance at CPT's licenced bar/café. The bar/café offers a variety of locally sourced beers, wines, ciders, spirits and soft drinks.
Often challenging and always thought-provoking, CPT's wide variety of shows guarantee a good time while also making you think. Why not check out CPT's upcoming listings using TickX? That way you can pick up the best Camden People's Theatre tickets straight away.
