Camden Crawl

Story by Jack Foley

THE Camden Crawl 2008 will go ahead as planned despite Saturday’s fire, it has been officially confirmed.

A statement issued by the organisers has just been released, saying: “Last Saturday’s tragic incident has understandably had a deep impact on those who work, live and frequent the Camden area. We are especially saddened by the extent of the damage wreaked upon The Hawley Arms and the upset and disruption that is has caused to our friends there.

“Central to last year’s event, The Hawley was due to host various live events and parties, but will now unfortunately not be included within the festivals.

“No other venues have been affected by the fire and the Camden Crawl will go ahead as planned on April 18 and 19.

“Camden’s musical history and reputation for breeding new musical talent will continue to be celebrated as now more than ever and we are currently looking into ways that the festival will be able to help those affected by the fire.”

This year’s event will support the Teenage Cancer Trust by including a £1 donation to the charity in every ticket sold. Find out more
