A number of shop windows in Central London have been turned into art galleries showing off work by students at several of London’s theatre arts schools.

More than 100 students from the BA Costume for Theatre and Screen, BA Production Arts for Screen and BA Theatre Design courses have their final degree pieces exhibited in 30 sites across the City of London, along Strand, and Victoria.

Strand Palace

Work on display includes costumes for productions such as A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Wicked and Woman in Black, intricate special effects models, set design maquettes and props and boards detailing the creative process.

Reusing the otherwise empty retail windows gives a splash of colour where otherwise there would be empty spaces, and is a clever way of showing off the student’s skills to a wider public than would usually get to see them. Some of the venues are still occupied, such as Coutts Bank.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
