Omnibus not just a Theatre!

At the heart of Clapham sits Omnibus Theatre a multi-award winning independent theatre bringing classics re-imagined and contemporary storytelling. Providing a platform for new writing and interdisciplinary work, aiming to give voice to the underrepresented and challenge perceptions. Omnibus believe in affordable tickets and theatre for all. But they also bring so much more for its community and budding writers and actors with free week-long theatre programme for local 8 – 11 year olds from Lambeth and Wandsworth running six times a year during the school holidays. The programme is aimed at young people who qualify for pupil premium/free school meals, or who otherwise would significantly benefit from Routes. 

Alongside receiving breakfast, lunch and healthy snacks, young people work together under the guidance of our facilitators to create a play from their own imaginations which they perform to friends and family at the end of the week in our Theatre. The aims for the week are simple; to work as a team, to challenge yourself and grow more confident – all whilst having lots of fun and food! you can read more about this scheme HERE
