Getting creative at St Albans Town Hall

LOCAL artists and performers are being sought to take part in a community project in St Albans Town Hall in September.

Creative St Albans, the new forum for the arts in the district, is behind The Big Project 2010 on Saturday, September 18.

The event will be open to the public throughout the day and local artists and performers – particularly students or recently-qualified artists and performers who might be interested in getting involved – are invited to apply.

A variety of spaces within the Town Hall will accommodate different types of arts, crafts and activities. The Assembly Room will be given over to music, drama and storytelling as well as an interactive schools exhibition based on the local environment.

The Ryder Room will be set up as a mini art studio where everyone can have a go at drawing a still life, supervised by local artists, and the walls throughout the building will display paintings, drawings and photography.

Downstairs, the Court Room will host music, drama and comedy while buskers entertain passers-by and local craft experts will have goods for sale in the foyer. The cells will be used to show a series of short films.

A spokesperson for The Big Project said: “The event will bring together the wide variety of creative talent in the district and there will be something for everyone to enjoy. We already have a number of local groups on board and we’re hoping to showcase as many creative and performance activities as possible.”
