Scarlet Sunday

Omnibus Theatre, Clapham

Can you truly separate the art from the artist? Art curator Yasmin embarks on a journey delving into the enigmatic life of the late artist Ray Blackwood and uncovers the haunting truth behind the mysterious painting “Scarlet Sunday”. The searing drama Scarlet Sunday explores the blurred lines between art and its creators, questioning our complicity in idolising their creations.

Home SW15


Home SW15 is a local friendly bistro serving all the brunch and lunch crowd pleasers such as eggs benedict, steak sandwich and caesar salads but with a more ambitious dinner menu featuring the likes of tuna tataki, venison carpaccio, mussels and churros with chocolate dipping sauce. One of its trademark dishes is the Sunday beef wellington (pictured below), which you have to pre-order. The restaurant prides itself on caring about what it does and looking after the customer, and it shows.
