The Music of Camden Town

The Music of Camden Town

Camden Town is a unique area of London, offering an eclectic mix of markets, canals, cuisines – and music.

  • It is where they Clash had their rehearsal rooms, and shot the iconic photo that graced the cover of their first album;
  • where Madness and Coldplay played their first gigs; it is home to the most iconic music venues in London;
  • was the epicentre of ‘Britpop’ in the 1990s, where Blur and Oasis would hang out;
  • and was home to Amy Winehouse, who was very much a regular in the local pubs.


This is a live online tour, and that there will be a Q & A session at the end. It is a great opportunity to meet fans from around the world!
