Welcome to the Website of the Camberwell Society

The Camberwell Society was formed in 1970 and is the recognised amenity society for those living, working or interested in Camberwell. The Society’s objectives, as defined by our constitution, are: to stimulate public interest in Camberwell, to promote high standards of planning and architecture in Camberwell, and to secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of features of historic or public interest in Camberwell.

We are a charity and raise money for local charities. In the past we have raised money for Cambridge House, the Camberwell Community Choir and the Hollington Youth Centre.  For 2014 we are supporting the Camberwell Arts Festival.

Come early to bag a good spot on the grass. Bring a picnic and something to sit on.
