We Are Angels

Have you seen the festive project ‘We are Angels’ that is up and running around Tamworth?

New Urban Era, our Arts and Events team, professional artists and students from South Staffordshire College have created this project to boost the town during a very different Christmas in the hope to bring a little festive cheer this year.

‘We are Angels’ is an extension to New Urban Eras Arts Council England funding and the council team are delighted to be supporting local artists while following current government Covid-19 guidelines.

Original artworks are now being displayed along with printed artworks submitted by the general public in windows throughout the town such as Ankerside, Marmion House, Tamworth Castle Grounds and Bandstand. The artwork will be displayed in windows until January 3, 2021, giving you plenty of time this festive season to explore and take photographs with these amazing artwork pieces.

The idea is for the public to stand in the middle of each wing design, take a selfie and share on social media. The hope is to fill Facebook with Christmas cheer and angels by tagging in @TamworthArtsandEvents and @NewurbanEra.

If you head to the New Urban Era Facebook page, you can see a great range of Angel Wing selfies that people have enjoyed taking and sharing, just to spur you on and to give you some inspiration.  

You can find the locations of the angel wings on the map below.

Have fun, thank you for joining in and Merry Christmas.
