About

Since opening in 2009 The Forge has embodied the vibrancy, charm, and eclecticism of Camden Town, bringing together the diversity of London’s eclectic music scene under one roof with a 300 capacity – making it an intimate setting and firm favourite amongst musicians and music-lovers alike.

The Forge showcases the best in world music, poetry and spoken word, storytelling, indie and folk, classical and contemporary classical, from intimate theatre to free weekend reggae parties.

What’s On at The Forge?

The Forge is an architectural masterpiece, commissioned in 2005, which has won awards from RIBA and the Civic Trust for its beautiful, sustainable design. It includes solar panels, natural ventilation systems and a stunning 6.5 metre high ‘living wall’ of plants designed by Katharine Bradburn. As a not-for-profit organisation, everything The Forge receives goes back into an ever-expanding programme.

Its beautiful décor also makes it a fantastic venue to hire for parties, functions, wedding receptions and business events.

The Forge Cantina is The Forge’s Latin American street food restaurant, with food ranging from Venezuelan arepas to Cuban sandwiches, Brazilian feijoada and Peruvian perihuela.
