Gloucester’s History Brought to Life 30th July – 1st August

Gloucester’s an ancient place, and wherever you go in the city centre you’re walking over some surprising archaeological remains; city walls, Roman buildings and even medieval churches survive beneath the city streets. Find out more, when it is brought life in three-dimensional form as pavement art. Joe Hill of 3D Joe and Max is a sought-after artist who has been making holes in the ground come to life all over the world with his clever use of perspective. Three new artworks will be sited on Eastgate Street this year as part of the Welcome Back to the High Street initiative. Come and have your photograph taken ‘in the ground’ to share with friends over social media and find out about the plans to conserve and rejuvenate Westgate Street.


There will be eight pieces of artwork set out along Westgate Street and Eastgate, and an accompanying exhibition and consultation event in the former David Edwards jewellery shop at no 21 Westgate St.

The artworks will be on display from 11.00am – 4.30pm on Friday 30th, Sat 31st, and from 11.00am until 4.00pm on Sunday 1st August. The event will be weather permitting and will be re-scheduled if there is high wind or heavy rain.
