  2. 2. WELCOME We are delighted to welcome you to Omnibus, the newest multi-arts centre in London. Seven years ago, Lambeth Council announced its intention to close this building and relocate the existing library. As the building would be redundant, a group of local residents, lead by Opera singer George Owen, set about raising funds and generating local support to turn this much-loved landmark into an arts centre. By 2012, against strong opposition from commercial developers, Omnibus had succeeded in persuading the Council to grant them a lease. Every effort has been made to respond sensitively to the Victorian design and to maintain the original fabric of the building.The overhaul has included the restoration of parquet flooring in the foyer and the refurbishment of the cast iron architecture of the mainstaircase.Amagnificentvaultedceilingwasdiscoveredinthemainhallonthefirst floor, hidden for decades by modernisation in the 1960s.Thanks to the time and money donatedbythelocalcommunityandthesupportofLambethCouncil,theoldlibraryhas been given a new lease of life and we are proud to open our doors with a programme of work which aims to make a difference to the cultural life of Clapham and beyond. Asamultiartscentre,wewishtowelcomeasdiverseanaudienceaspossibleforavibrant mix of cultural experiences: theatre, new writing, classical and contemporary music, chamber musicals, opera, literature, spoken word, talks, films, visual art, exhibitions, comedy nights and family events.We will also create an artistic hub to explore cross art form collaborations, exchange ideas and actively engage in creative work with our local community. Responding to this unique space and location is an integral part of our creative delivery and it is with great pleasure that we launch our theatre programme with a centennial production of Georg Buchner’sWoyzeck.
