The Saturday Club at the Lord Mayor’s Show

The National Art & Design Saturday Club took part in the recent Lord Mayor’s Show in London with a float featuring the work of 30 youngsters from around the country.

The Saturday Clubs were set up by the Sorrell Foundation in 2009 and provide the opportunity for young people aged 14-16 to study art and design at a local college or university.
