Bringing together comedy, theatre, poetry, dance and much more, the Camden Fringe boasts over 180 different productions and (some very odd) shows across 17 venues in north London borough throughout from 28th July to 24th August 2014. Whether you want to catch some of the edgiest stand-up around or witness a new twist on Shakespeare or watch a group of OAPs rap, the Camden Fringe has become the metaphorical David, ready "to challenge the Edinburgh Goliath" (The Guardian). Now in its ninth year, this rapidly growing four-week festival is offering fresh opportunity for both new and established acts to get themselves noticed in a creative environment outside Edinburgh. Rather than being centred around the High Street venues cover the whole borough of Camden, from Upstairs at the Gatehouse in Highgate Village to the Tristan Bates Theatre in Covent Garden and include the Etcetera Theatre - where the first Camden Fringe took place in 2006.
Discover the best of London's entertainment this year with our comprehensive guide to 2014's top events. From theatre to art and music to sport, London in 2014 has something for everyone - so read on to find out what London town has to offer.
