A new public art project in Blackburn Town Centre will celebrate the towns music tradition.
Some of the world’s most influential bands and artists of the 20th century to have ever played at Blackburn’s King George’s Hall – right from the Beatles to Bowie – will be celebrated in a permanent feature thanks to an exciting new public art commission.
The innovative tree grate project – with new paving, will capture some of the best artists and bands to have played over the past six decades at the town’s iconic hall.
The project has been commissioned as part of the Blakey Moor Townscape Heritage public space improvements which are now well underway.
The full list of names is, quite simply, incredible from the Beatles and Cilla Black to Bowie and Buzzcocks, New Order, Robbie Williams, The Stone Roses and more recently artists like Kaiser Chiefs, Jake Bugg and The Courteeners.
