Banbridge town revitalised by striking new street art

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

ABC Council is delivering a wide range of town centre improvements as part of its Arrivals Project in a bid to enhance the town’s physical environment, improve its linkages and capitalise on the area’s tourism potential following the opening of the Game of Thrones Studio Tour.

Five highly acclaimed artists were commissioned to turn a key focal point in the town centre into a stunning work of art that celebrated the town’s history and heritage.

Speaking about this project, Lord Mayor Alderman Glenn Barr said: “Banbridge is a town on the up and the new street art positively reinforces this.

“I’m delighted that the local community is embracing and appreciating the bright, bold and thought-provoking designs, which convey a story about bygone Banbridge.
