London Borough of Culture

We are asking for your support for Camden to be London Borough of Culture 2019 or 2020 and here are some of your incredible messages of support.
For immediate publication: Using a video from two young filmmakers as inspiration, Camden residents are being urged to also tell of their passion for their area and in turn back the borough’s bid to be crowned London Borough of Culture*.
This film, by directing duo James & James - comprising of film makers James Coyle and Jamie McCormack, is their homage to the borough of Camden. Jamie McCormack grew up in Queen’s Park, went to school in Cricklewood and spent many a teenage near-nefarious night out on the streets of Camden - primarily Camden Town, Belsize Park and Kentish town. In all that time he never realised just how big and varied the borough of Camden is- and when we found out we wanted to make a film that explored it properly - a paean to the borough that was home to so many memories.
