Friar Park, 1979

“We were always fannying about with a parachute. As I recall, it was another example of us being quite eclectic and open minded to learning about what others were doing so I’ve no doubt we came across the parachute and the ‘New Games’ movement from our trip to Newcastle to mix with all those other Playbus people. It was more play than arts!  I think we were also trying to find things to do with the bus that wouldn’t involve a whole production number and could be handled by the two of us as the newly appointed bus workers.”

Kate Organ was the one of the four founder members from 1974, devising and performing in street and pub theatre shows, working on summer playschemes and, in 1978, establishing the Bus Project. Today she works as a freelance arts management and policy consultant.
