Festive Light Ride! by Arushi Treanor

Our local theatre, Omnibus in Clapham organised a Festive Light Ride for about eighty people around Lambeth. It was a wonderful opportunity for people of all ages to get on their bikes for some festive fun around some fabulous landmarks, safely escorted by Cycle Confident marshals.

It was lovely, and as I said, the team did their best to make sure we were all safe. I went with some friends and my family, who were all very excited and at the front of the trail all the time.

There were lots of shows along the way to see, such as a magic show where the man could control a ball, he even made it hover above his hand! I’m so delighted that mummy and daddy booked us there! We even got to see a man eat fire!

Omnibus are so amazing, you should definitely book something there. We have been lucky enough to see some great shows – one about recycling, one about Einstein. My youngest brother went to see the Nutcracker – we have been to see authors talk about their books and even drawn the common with local artist. There is so much stuff you can do there but that’s another story. Did you know Omnibus were so kind they even gave each child a cuddly toy after out bike ride!

Visual Arts: Spring Roundup

By | News

Conversation Piece is the name given to a type of group portraiture. Works of this sort are usually small in scale and depict, relatively informally, a group of family members or of friends.

The Omnibus After School Art Club worked with Colombian artist and graduate of Central St. Martin’s art college in London, Sonnia Mar Montes to produce a book together.

Sonnia has produced several inventive and innovative books.with other community groups.

The title Conversation Pieces was chosen to express the idea of a collective work in images, poetry and text to which all the participants made contributions.

In Spring term we invited children from Oak Lodge School for children with impaired hearing to join our other students from Chestnut Grove Academy and Virgo Fidelis Preparatory School.

Sincere thanks to everybody who took part and gave their creative energies to our project.

Let’s hope that we can produce more collective works of this kind of thing in the future.
