Camdens People Theatre

Founded in 1994 by a group of theatre practitioners interested in developing a collaborative working method and a visual, gestural style of performance, Camden People’s Theatre has been dedicating itself to artists and audiences that take risks and make exciting choices. To this day, CPT continues to forge short- and long-term relationships with a diverse range of companies and artists and very few venues can match their depth of involvement in visual, physical and collaboratively-made theatre. It occupied what was once the Palmerston pub on Hampstead Road, and initially focused on making non-text-based theatre productions at affordable prices and with an international flavour, alongside workshops and classes in the local community. Over the years CPT has evolved, aiming to produce, promote, support, mentor and provide resources for new, emerging and established performance companies and solo artists who work in ways that extend the boundaries of theatre and performance.

Jewish Museum London

The Jewish Museum, originally founded in 1932 by Professor Cecil Roth, Alfred Rubens and Wilfred Samuel has been housed in three different locations throughout Camden. Originally at Woburn House in Bloomsbury, it stayed there for nearly 60 years, moving to an elegant early Victorian listed building in Camden Town in 1994. The current site, a former piano factory, opened to the public on 17 March 2010 and is an amalgamation of both the original Jewish Museum and the London Museum of Jewish Life (founded in 1983 as the Museum of the Jewish East End).
