Omnibus (2010)

Omnibus was a performance event which took place in Totnes on May 16th 2010 and was then repeated on June 20th for the Dartington Festival.

Omnibus took place on a 1950′s bedford OB SL-71 Duple bus which transported the audience and performers through the town of Totnes and out into the village of Dartington.

Memories that were made many years ago, and memories that have only recently come to exist. Interviews with the lunch club at Totnes Caring. Photographic documentation from Totnes Image Bank.

The Omnibus was a ‘Back to the Future’ experience which left the passengers telling each other to ‘stay on the bus’ to see if they could sneak onto another trip back in time.
