As part of marking the bicentenary, Caroline Friedman, of the Harrowby and District Residents Association (HDRA) organised an art competition for schools. Entrants competed to have their work displayed in a special Bicentenary of the Cato Street Conspiracy exhibition at the Cube gallery, Marylebone. All of the wining entries later received their prizes from children’s illustrator Michael Foreman.
HDRA had a large number of entries and were very impressed by the level of detail and knowledge about the conspiracy from all the entries. It was incredibly hard to choose, but in the end the four winning entries came from Agatha (St Gabriel’s School), Katie (aged10), and Yamali (also aged 10) (both from Servite Catholic Primary school, Chelsea) The overall winner was Lotte (aged 11) of Holy Trinity School with her very detailed collage. All of the children received art sets from leading illustrator Michael Foreman.
The winning pictures were displayed at the Cube Gallery, 16 Crawford Street,
London, W1H 1BS during March 2020
