Now Then - The Gaol Street Mural Project

Saturday 22nd November at 11.00am the Gaol Street Mural was officially unveiled in Gaol Street, Oakham

Local artist Monica Ferandez has been working with the local community over the last 6 months to create the mural.

Over 180 participants of all ages took part in a programme of events held at the Victoria Hall, at the monthly Farmer's Market, Catmose, Buttercross House and at Jules Youth Club.

The £10,000 project has over 100 photographs digitally printed onto ceramic tiles  mounted on the side of the Co-op Funeral Care building.

Funding for the project came from the Arts Council, Oakham Town Council, Rutland County Council, Oakham Town Partnership, Travis Perkins, Tim Norton Motor Services, Rutland Plastics, and Hambleton Farms Ltd.

Monica Fernandez said
"These murals are about the memories, stories and history of local industries. I feel honoured to share ownership with all the residents from Oakham and Rutland who have taken part sharing their photos, time and belongings".
