YOUNGSTERS from the Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation were showing off their work in an exhibition in Queen’s Crescent on bank holiday Monday.
About a hundred people gathered to see a musical performances, as well as art and photography produced by the children and teenagers who had taken part in the free sessions funded by donations and Camden Council. A dance show ‘A Brave New World’ was also showcased. Up to 60 youngsters a day had been taking part in projects over the summer.
It was also held to remember former patron Helen McCrory, who died earlier this year. An award has been set up in her honour. Her husband, Damian Lewis, visited the event and has become a patrol of the charity. Actress Sadie Frost, who has been working on a project with some of the children also came down to support it, as did Gospel Oak local Michael Palin.
Donations to support future projects can be made online.
