The Lord Stanley pub at 51, Camden Park Rd, London, NW1 is home to Solo Festival, London’s showcase event for one-man shows, and it’s on now, until 2 August 2011.

Over 40 actors will be performing, and hoping to carry off one of the Festival’s five awards. Solo Festival is the largest showcase for one-man (or one-person) shows in Europe. Among those taking part are Chris Batten, Caroline Bragg, Yael Gezentsvy and David Mansel.

Writers featured include Samuel Beckett, Dario Fo and Felix Mitterrer. Performances will illustrate the lives of, among others, AE Housman, Eddie Ramone and John Clare.
