Small Theatre, Big Heart
The smallest theatre in the capital in the heart of Camden
Location: 265 Camden High Street, NW1 7BU
Description: The 'Etcetera Theatre' is one of London's best known pub theatres. Situated above The Oxford Arms on Camden High Street, the Etcetera is only 75 metres from Camden Town tube station and is at the heart of one of the city's busiest and most vibrant areas.
The Etcetera was born in 1986 when David Bidmead spotted the possibilities of a small function room above the Oxford Arms pub in on Camden High Street.
The Etcetera has become well known on the Fringe for the intimacy and versatility as a performance space and as a venue that actively supports new writing and writers.
In fact it is the smallest theatre in the capital. Its diminutive proportions and 42 seats haven't stopped it staging some impressive shows, including Chris Morris' Blue Jam.
