Colourful and interesting bus shelters have started popping up across Tamworth as part of a community art project involving local artists and hundreds of school children.

Residents can now catch attractive art, as well as buses, at a 1970s living room bus shelter in Kerria Road, Amington, at a beach hut on the B5000 in Glascote Heath and at a Wild About Tamworth shelter in Peelers Way, Kettlebrook.

Further shelters will be revealing their bright new makeovers in the coming weeks, including a tree-themed bus stop in Fossdale Road, Stonydelph, a farm stop in Silver Link Road and an art gallery themed ‘Tam Modern’ stop in Fontenaye Road, Coton Green.

The ‘Catch Art’ project is part of the Tamworth Arts in Unusual Spaces initiative, which aims to bring art to all corners of the community, thanks to dedicated funding from Arts Council England. Read More Here
