Current projects with our community
Creative Families Programme
Our creative families programme is a space for all the family - parents and children aged 5 plus - to get together and engage in arts and cultural activity. All activity is free and leads into a community café with board games and craft activity available.
We piloted our first 6-week programme in November 2021 with local single parent families, working closely with Camden North’s Single Parent Network Co-ordinator Ema Howling. The sessions engaged with clowning techniques, led by artists Fiona Bines and Lewis Bray. Following its success, we will be continuing in the new year. All families welcome!

No Direction Home Stand Up
Since autumn 2018 Camden People’s Theatre, Counterpoints Arts and award-winning comedian Tom Parry (Pappy’s; Badults; The Lost Disc) have been running the No Direction Home stand-up programme – a unique new course for aspiring comics from refugee and migrant backgrounds.
After the smash-hit success of the gigs so far, featuring guest headliners Nish Kumar, Joel Dommett and Lou Sanders join us for more laughs from our talented team.

Drummond Street Festival
Drummond Street Festival is a biennial community festival created to celebrate our wonderful local residents and traders.
First launched in 2017, CPT partnered with Camden Council to programme a one-day festival of culture, food and family that featured beatbox workshops and wonderful dance performances by Remix Dance and performance poet Dan Simpson.
In 2019, CPT partnered with Euston Town (BID) to deliver the second festival, with a strong focus on the foodie offer from Drummond Street. The festival featured performances from local dance groups, sari making workshops and brilliant music.

Tolmer's Square Variety Spectacular
In the Summer of 2020, we presented a collection of terrific performances in the central garden of Tolmer's Square, just behind CPT. The community watched from their windows, balconies and at a safe distance. The event was a true celebration of culture and coming together.
Following the success of this community event, we staged it again in September 2021, but due to weather conditions we moved the event into our newly refurbished building. This was a great opportunity for our community to get together and explore our building. Most attendees reported that it was the first time they had visited Camden People’s Theatre and socialised with their neighbours.
Both events featured hip hop and spoken word from Beats and Elements, extraordinary juggling from Sam Veale, spine-tingling sword swallowing from MisSa Blue, cabaret antics from Rhys' Pieces, clown comedy from Frankie Thompson, dazzling hula hooping courtesy of Symone and Sky, The Gentleman Juggler extraordinaire Mr Ian Marchant, performance artist Augusto Corrieri and Drag King gender Illusionist LoUis CYfer.
