Worcester aerial art displays are a must see

Malvern Editorial 7th Jul, 2024   0

WORCESTER is now ablaze with colour as the summer aerial displays have been installed throughout the city.

The vibrant bunting, featuring the distinctive Worcester Colour Palette by Stacey Barnfield, celebrates the city’s rich heritage and has been prominently displayed across various locations.

The displays include giant palette board decorations, classic summer bunting, and giant mesh spheres suspended overhead.

This initiative by Worcester BID aims to create livelier and more engaging city streets, already enticing many to book long weekends in the city to enjoy the displays.

This year, Worcester BID has installed displays on eight city centre streets, including The Shambles, The Hopmarket, Reindeer Court, Broad Street, New Street, Friar Street, Mealcheapen Street, and St. Swithin’s. The Worcester Colour Palette, inspired by Worcester’s landmarks and history, features colours such as Elgar Bronze, Saucy Orange, Hive Gold, Cathedral Stone, Diglis Deep Blue, and Pear Black, reflecting the city’s vibrancy and diversity.

The displays include a palette board of decorations, summer bunting, and giant mesh spheres suspended overhead.

Justin Schiffmann, owner of antiques business Ware said: “The installation of aerial displays in Reindeer Court is wonderful, tying the Court in with the city colour palette.

“Small businesses benefit enormously from increased footfall brought about by Worcester BID initiatives such as this—giving another reason to visit Reindeer Court.”

Bill Simpson, trustee at The Hopmarket Charity said: “We are delighted to be part of Worcester BID’s initiative to bring colour and vibrancy into The Hopmarket; not only does it look fabulous it also brings the city’s history and heritage to life.

“We hope it encourages more visitors to our courtyard space over the summer months.”
