THE ORIGINAL paintings which sparked rumours famous street artist Banksy had graced the town with his work are set to be sold off for a good cause.
The pieces along with the stencil of the image of Sir Edward Elgar next to the phone box outside of Rose Bank gardens, will be auctioned at 7pm next Thursday (April 10) in the Harecourt room a Mount Pleasant Hotel.
Malvern Town Council has arranged the event in conjunction with the artists Lee Morris and Tom Brown, both from Malvern, and the proceeds will be ploughed into supporting arts in the community.
The paintings of the town’s famous composer sparked furore following their impromptu appearance in March as the pieces mimicked the style of Banksy, who is notorious for never revealing his true identity.
The auction will be followed by Mayor Julian Roskams’ Mindboggling quiz to raise money for Malvern Special Families.
Teams of four to five members are welcome to enter and a curry supper can be booked for £3.
