Residents will have the chance to get involved in creating two new pieces of artwork in Droitwich town centre.

The murals, to be installed on Emms Haberdashery and The Talbot, will reflect the area’s history in one of the pieces, while leaving room for broader themes in the other.

A four-week public consultation is now underway to gather ideas from residents about what they want represented in these upcoming murals.

The process will culminate in focus groups with specific community groups and organisations to help guide the chosen artist's designs.

The newly proposed murals are expected to be in place by April 2025.

They will be funded through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund as part of the government’s Levelling Up Agenda, and are a joint initiative of Wychavon District Council and Droitwich Spa Place Board.

The incoming murals will be support the Droitwich Spa Underpass Art Project, which transformed seven underpasses into community-backed works of art.

Matt Nicol, chair of Droitwich Spa Place Board, said: "We’re committed to making the high street a focus for the town and I’m really excited to hear what residents suggest for these two key locations, which will link nicely with the festoon lighting which was installed last year."

Cllr Richard Morris, executive board member for economic growth and tourism at Wychavon, added: "These artworks will be a fantastic addition to Droitwich Spa High Street and provide another reason to come and explore all our wonderful town has to offer.

"The success of the Droitwich Underpass Art Project was built on the involvement of the community, so I urge people to get involved and help us create something amazing for our town centre."
