Radical Theatre walking tours

IMG 0803

Here I am out in the sunshine sitting outside the site of the Old Bedford Music Hall in Camden Town's Arlington Road. I am trying to decide if the working class music hall theatre popular between 1850 & 1960 had any impact on the development of Britain's left-wing radical theatre movement, in which the London Borough of Camden played such a significant part during the years 1966-1988.

Come on our fascinating walk to find out and learn about the astonishing release of theatrical energy in the Borough, following the abolishment of government censorship in 1965.


First walking tour in this Sunday 21 June 2015 at 11am leaving from Kings Cross station concourse.

Second walking tour is on Saturday 27 June 2015 at 11 am leaving from the Kings Cross station concourse.
