Great Yarmouth Public Art Trail and Market Place Sculpture
Great Yarmouth is going through of period of unprecedented investment and regeneration with a range of interventions, schemes and projects bringing about positive change and building on the towns unique character, heritage, and culture. This includes a new covered market, landscaping and reviving the medieval town centre. Alongside this, investment has been received to restore the Winter Gardens site, a new leisure centre, a new university learning hub together with wholesale improvements to the public realm of the town's Market Place and beyond.
As part of this programme of investment and regeneration, Great Yarmouth Borough Council is commissioning:
- a public art trail - a circular route of 10 pieces of public artworks intended to guide participants around Great Yarmouth from the dazzling seafront to the historic town centre
- our councillors have expressed a desire for the artworks to celebrate the best of Great Yarmouth, from its role as circus capital, its maritime and medieval history, and its embracing of clean energy and transport links; artworks should be a tribute to both the towns heritage and future, celebrating the diverse and resilient communities that have been and now reside
a sculpture for the newly landscaped Market Place of Great Yarmouth.
our councillors have expressed a desire for this sculpture to be bold, celebratory and an emblem of confidence that demonstrates the forward-looking ambitions of the town and place that is Great Yarmouth and its community in this dynamic new chapter
