The COTH at Chutney Preserves 4


SUNDAY JUNE 27th - 1-7pm


Doctor Moreau meets Doctor Dolittle on Animal Farm!

The Chutney Preserves return to the sacred site of Camberwell Green to host an unforgettable closing event for the Camberwell Arts festival.

From 1279 until 1855 a fayre was held on Camberwell Green, one of the many attractions was a menagerie of wild animals captured from distant lands. In homage to the beasts of the ancient Camberwell Fayre, artists will create a fair and foul enclosure of luxurious and curious beasts, transforming the Green into a safari park for human animals and their keepers, with beastly goings on, sideshows and a program of performance in ‘the big top'.
