"Each year many businesses around the town centre display huge paintings done by local professional and amateur artists.

"With a huge range of styles and images this is accessible "Street Art" for all!

"This is of course the Queen's Platinum Jubilee year and our boards will remain in place throughout our festival in May and through the Jubilee celebrations in June.

"We have chosen the theme – "A Right Royal Celebration"

"Amateur and professional artists, school and community groups are creating a colourful gallery of celebratory paintings which will be in place from 28th April to 6th July.

"Once the boards are in place you will be able to download a map of all the board locations and details from our website and follow the trail.

"If you don't have access to mobile technology, a limited number of paper trail maps will be available from Fair 2 All on Bath Street and Sweet Memory Lane on Elford Street and in Ashby Library."
