SO, we didn’t get a disco maypole or a big tree, but we did get some breakdancing and a stall selling coke. But whatever next for the pedestrianised public land outside Camden Town Tube Station? Enter the living statues, oh yes them, this week, as the Covent Gardenisation of Camden Town, an area which once prided itself on being alternative trail for tourists, continues apace.
All we need now is a Ferris Wheel, somebody dressed up as Donald Duck or Papa Smurf waving and ruffling the hair of passing little ones, and it can rival the South Bank. The community support officers trying to keep things in check out there have their work cut out.
