Music & Markets: Bohemian Camden

Music & Markets: Bohemian Camden

This event has finished Took place on: Friday, 20th Oct 2017

See where rock and pop artists have made their debuts and performed over the last 60 years. Hear the stories of fame and fortune and the toll a rock star's life can take.
Have senses assaulted by the tumult that is Camden's four markets and join the estimated 100,000 visitors come to them every weekend.  See the exotic, and occasionally erotic, mix of clothes, services and food on offer
But how did Camden attract such a colourful mix of the avant-garde, Bohemian and outright wacky? And how does it sustain it?
 Take a walk with Jiff Bayliss along Camden High Street and Chalk Farm Road and understand the history and development of one of the most quixotic areas of London:

From the Pratt who found it to the Strange guy who revived it.
How transport more than any other force shaped its contours and culture
See where some of the most iconic names in British entertainment have strutted their stuff over the last 100 years
Stare at the agit-prop installations
Get lost in the maze of markets
And hear tales of Monty Pyjon, the Goons, Madonna, Pink Flloyd, Led Zeppelin, Amy Whinehouse and Ed Sheeran 

At the end, you’ll want to retrace your steps and go back for more!
Starts outside Mornington Crescent UndergrounD station.  Combine with a visit to Camden Lock market. You can check travel options at the Transport for London Journey Planner. 

Cost: £21
