24 High Street
Rik Bennett’s new large-scale mural on the High Street captures the essence of what the street once was, referencing the many dance halls, pubs and clubs that used to thrive here. He has transformed the front of one of the many now disused shops into a bold and colourful reminder of the energy and activity that once existed. By doing so Bennett is adding to the current reawakening that is taking place on this street, creating a new vibrancy and contributing positively to its regeneration and potential future.
