Camden Pop-Up – Think & Do

Camden Think & Do pop-up

We’re getting in touch from Camden Council because we’ve just opened a pop-up ‘think & do’ community space for climate and eco-action in Kentish Town. This is in response to the Citizens’ Assembly recommendation to do more to bring existing community groups together to work on tackling the climate crisis.

The aim of the pop-up is to give people in Camden the chance to take part in, run and grow activities that get people more involved in tackling the climate crisis. From clothes swaps to meals made from surplus veg, there are a variety of events coming up that we’d love you to attend.

Where is the community space and when is it open?

We’re the teal blue building at 315 Kentish Town Rd, Kentish Town, London NW5 2TJ (opposite the library). We’re open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am – 8pm now until 7th December.

What is happening at the pop-up?

The 6-week programme of events is being curated and led by Camden residents and community groups. See schedule for the first week below.

Hidden London Underground

London’s Underground system has many deserted nooks and crannies, part of its history of more than 150 years. Tours can be organised to see some of them.

A book has been produced, Hidden London: Discovering the Forgotten Underground, including pictures of underground passages, repurposed stations, and disused stations (including Camden’s own South Kentish Town Station, closed since 1924).

In fact, South Kentish Town Station is being used as an escape room experience at the moment! Probably inspired by a piece, South Kentish Town, written by Sir John Betjeman, about a fictional passenger who became trapped at the station.
