Being in the buzz of Camden, the London Irish Centre has been a hub of social activity since its doors first opened in 1954.

Not only does the venue offer a vast range of Irish social events, but we’re also home to Live at the Camden Chapel, Stand Up Camden nights and about to commence our 4th year participating in Camden Fringe.

Camden Fringe 2019 – Nuts

Date: 9th August 2019

Time: 21:30 - 22:30

Location: Camden's London Irish Centre

Camden Fringe 2019 – Nuts

The naked truth (not the lads mag).

Two friends want each other to know that they’re living their best lives. While they awkwardly skirt over the truth about work, sex and love, all wildly inappropriate thoughts are directed to you, the audience.

A touching comedy for anyone who’s ever worried about what other people think. P.S. Free nuts.

Camden Fringe 2019 – Theatre of Life’s Riddikulusness

Date: 9th August 2019

Time: 17:45 - 18:45

Location: Camden's London Irish Centre

Camden Fringe 2019 – Theatre of Life’s Riddikulusness

Lexi and Beth want to escape their inner turmoil, but they don’t have a magic wand to vanquish their troubles like their heroes in Harry Potter. They throw themselves into the next best thing: theatre magic.

Will their creative sanctuary bring them peace or feed their avoidance?

The show explores mental health, gender, and identity.

Camden Fringe – I know it was the Blood

Date: 10th August 2019

Time: 19:30 - 20:30

Location: Camden's London Irish Centre

Camden Fringe – I know it was the Blood

After racking up wins on its U.S. Tour, “I Know It Was The Blood: The Totally True Adventures of a Newfangled Black Woman” makes its U.K. Premiere! Actress, soprano, and storyteller Tara Lake takes audiences on a journey into the world of African-American Jersey girlhood in the 1980s-1990s — a world steeped in family Sundays, church conventions, and extravagant reunions, weddings, and funerals.

In a story of triumph tinged with bits of heartache, a scrappy girl-child navigates a changing world and finds the courage to live life on her own terms. It’s an unforgettable sojourn embracing southern roots, gospel rhythms, and queer identity, in which one family’s love conquers all. Join us for a compelling performance of soul-rich theatre, storytelling, song, and poetry!

Suitable for ages 13+
