About

Come with us as we explore some of the hidden and not so hidden works of art scattered around our town and see how they add to the character of our local landscape.

The council has operated a 'Percent for Art' scheme since 1994 which has seen the completion of over 70 new art schemes located throughout the borough that help to create a sense of place and add character to the built environment.

Starting with a stroll through Queen’s Park we’ll explore the hidden and not so hidden works of art around our town and the inspiration behind them.
