Omnibus

A space for arts and ideas, connections and discoveries.

The Omnibus programme encompasses everything from five-star productions of classic plays to film screenings, spoken word performances, cabaret and puppetry. You can find lectures, book readings and massively successful local education projects, both on the road and in-house.

Every weekend we also serve up the Sunday music schedule, which boasts the best emerging and established jazz, classical and world musicians. A hive of activity and a hub for socialising, there’s always something going on in the Omnibus building.

With an ambitious artistic vision informing every decision and a need to appeal to the curious, Omnibus specialises in defying conventions in everything it does.

Just a short walk down the road from Clapham Common tube (on the Northern Line), Omnibus is always great value – under 25’s can get in to many events for a fiver and there are very often free events making up part of the programme.
