Each week we work with Omnibus Theatre group to learn some of the skills of drama. We go to the hall and practice our acting and we are encouraged to really feel as though we are telling a story with our bodies. These sessions are great fun!

The Omnibus Theatre Group are a multi-award winning theatre in Clapham, offering a vibrant artistic programme inspired by the legacy of the old Clapham Library building.

Their venue is home to a 90-seat studio theatre, a café/bar and two performance and rehearsal spaces.

Omnibus Theatre was founded in 2013, following a seven-year campaign to save the old Clapham Library building. Their patrons are Sir Michael Gambon, Sir Richard Eyre, Matthew Warchus and Maggi Hambling CBE.

The mission

Omnibus Theatre is a home of storytelling – a small place to encounter big ideas. They are driven by the legacy of Their former library building to tell stories, familiar and unknown, in South London and beyond. The mission is to create theatre that has the power to inspire audiences, to change minds, to bring us together.
