Beeston All Stars Trail

Beeston All Stars Trail

Information about Beeston's new art trail to celebrate our local heroes.

A new art trail has been unveiled in Beeston to highlight the contribution of key workers to the community during the Covid-19 pandemic.Broxtowe Mayor and local police officer and volunteer at art trail opening

Ten images representing staff ranging from teachers and shop staff to NHS workers and carers are on display in various locations around the town.

Commissioned by Broxtowe Borough Council, the trail is part of a series of events to mark the redevelopment of the town centre and will serve as a lasting reminder of the dedication of key workers throughout the past 18 months.

The art trail is one of a number of exciting events for the town this year, where a £50m transformation of the town square is currently underway.

The first phase saw the new Arc cinema open at the end of May and an array of new retail, food and drink outlets will be opening on the ground floor of the cinema building over the coming months.

In the second phase a 132-apartment block will be constructed on the opposite side of the Square.

Visitors will be able to see a map showing all ten locations by scanning a QR code on the plaque on each of the artworks, and are being encouraged to share their snaps of them taking part in the trail on social media using #BeestonAllStars.
