Camberwell Fair is a free entry festival taking place on Camberwell Green.
Made possible by support from Arts Council England, Southwark Council, High Street Challenge, National Lottery Awards for All and sponsors Zipcar, Hyperoptic, Offcut Barbers and easyGym, the Fair will welcome 4000 people from Camberwell, surrounding areas and all over London to come together to meet each other, eat, drink, dance, trade and celebrate.
This will be the 5th Camberwell Fair in modern times, but there was a Fair on the same site from 1279-1855 until shut down by the authorities for ‘immoral and riotous behaviour’. Camberwell has changed a lot since those times, and the Fair of course reflects the people of modern Camberwell, but the spirit is the same – a chance for the whole community to come together and unite.
In addition to the Fair itself, we are committed to providing artistic and enterprise opportunities in the local area in the months before the Fair - check out our Enterprise Programme and Artist Development Programme
