Venue and accommodation
The Irish Centre
50 – 52 Camden Square
Situated within a leafy square in the vibrant district of Camden, this versatile and modern venue will be ideal for hosting this years Fantasia.
We have the fabulous McNamara suite as our main area with Open Stage and souk, the Presidential suite for Taster Sessions and Seminars, The Library as our changing area for performers on the Open Stage.
The venue has a bar which is open all day and offers hot and cold drinks, sandwiches and crisps. You can bring your own food to eat in the main hall if you like – but please buy drinks from the bar. There is also a cafe over the road.
Nearest Tube: Camden Town Tube – about a 10 minute walk
Nearest overground: Camden Road – about a 7 minute walk
Parking: There is street parking which I have been advised is free on a weekend. The venue does not have a car park.
Camden has some lovely places to stay but is a bit pricey. There is a Holiday Inn at Camden Lock that people recommended last year. This is a busy time of year for them so it is subject to availability….. the earlier you book the more likely you are to get a good price.
It is worth checking Air BnB.
If you want something more reasonably priced, and don’t mind a walk…. or a bus journey, try the Euston Travel Lodge.
This year we are booked into the Euston Travel Lodge.
