Made in Camden - summer programme highlights

Camden is a hotbed of creative talent, with an extraordinary range of artists, sportspeople and creative businesses based in the borough.  Our spectacular summer cultural programme will focus primarily on home-grown creativity.

Camden also plays host to a wide range of educational establishments and institutions, many of which are amongst the very best in the world.

This year is a fantastic opportunity to showcase our talented young people to an international audience.
