Tour of Britain - Special artwork to grace town

Malvern Editorial 5th Sep, 2014 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

EAGLE-EYED spectators will be able to look out for special artwork to mark the Tour of Britain coming to town.

Staff from Malvern Town Council will be stationed at Lower Howsell Road playing fields about 11am before the peloton is expected to pass through displaying a giant stencil of the jersey presented to the race winner.

The white jersey decorated with green Polka dots has been sponsored by Malvern’s Fleetline Markers and has been entitled ‘King of the Mountains’. 

Meanwhile the council’s offices on Belle Vue Terrace will also be adorned with artwork created by town resident Lee Morris, one of the artists who was notoriously behind the ‘Banksy’ style Elgar pictures in Great Malvern earlier this year.

His latest piece has been commissioned by the Elgar Birthplace Museum and was unveiled yesterday (Tuesday).

Lee said: “After researching Sir Edward Elgar we found that he had a fun side to his personality that is rarely seen in photos. What we did know is that he loved bikes and we felt this piece expressed Elgar in a fun way.”

Lee will soon be making a collection of Elgar prints available to purchase at www.weloveart.co.uk with 10 per cent of sales to be donated to Mayor Julian Roskams’ chosen charities for the year Age UK and Dementia UK.
