Anne Frank + You, presented by anti-prejudice education charity the Anne Frank Trust UK in partnership with Camden Council, presents facsimile artefacts from Anne’s life and from the Holocaust, including a life-size replica of her bedroom in the ‘secret annexe’ where she and her family hid for more than two years in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam.
Love Camden loves its local talent. We aim to celebrate everything cultural in the borough, from Hampstead to Kilburn, from the British Library to that little café around the corner - we are always out to show what Camden has to offer. As part of this we launched our Camden Close-Up series: interviews with artists, thinkers, entrepreneurs and downright interesting figures that live, work or are inspired by the borough.
