I’m blown away by what CPT has been doing these past few months. Feels like it’s totally blazing a trail, artistically & politically” – Chris Goode, theatre-maker

Camden People’s Theatre is a central London space dedicated year-round to supporting early-career artists – particularly those making work about issues that matter to people right now. Our mission is to refresh and strengthen the performance sector with a new generation of artists who bring a fresh perspective to contemporary concerns, create new artistic forms with which to address them; and to present their work to a new generation of audiences.

Amy Daniels, Technical Manager

Amy has been obsessed with all things theatre since before she can remember. She started working at CPT as a casual in March 2018, and became technical manager in August 2018. She studied English Literature at the University of Sussex, but discovered the joys of technical production and learnt all her skills on a year abroad at SUNY Stony Brook. Since going freelance a year ago, she has worked at various theatres and festivals including The Cockpit, Hen & Chickens, Bridge Theatre, The Warren (Brighton Fringe) and Paradise Green (Edinburgh Fringe). This summer, she started working as a lighting designer, and has since designed several shows in London.

Harriet Vincent, Front of House Manager

Email us: [email protected]

First things first, Harriet is called ‘H’ [pron. eych] and never Harriet. This is just one of her many wonderful peculiarities. She has endless experience in theatre and festival operations, being affiliated with Pleasance at The Edinburgh Fringe in Front of House management, with VAULT Festival as a Venue Stage Manager and at BAC as Duty Manager. While other areas of H’s experience delves into box office and customer care, what she really dreams of is climbing high enough in operations so she can sail off around the world with her own arts festival. Owning a great interest in fringe theatre and new writing is what drives H to bring the best possible experience to the diverse audiences regularly accessing artistic work.
