The Town as Our Canvas

Building up to the festival, and celebrating our festival theme of “Origin Of Species”, we are proud to be commissioning a group of local mural artists lead by renowned artist Rory McCann. He is designing a huge town wide series of murals that come together to create one of the most ambitious pieces of sequential art ever undertaken, telling the story of the lifetime of Charles Darwin and Shrewsbury across the town.

You will be able to witness these magnificent pieces of art being created throughout the spring of 2019 and all weekend long at the festival. Perhaps you would also like to contribute with some art of your own? The opportunities to get involved are endless, no matter what level of artistic ability you have.
