On the hunt for wolves in Wolves

We’re one of the sponsors of a brand new art project in Wolverhampton, which will see wolves ‘run wild’ across the city centre in a bid to encourage people to explore the city’s local attractions.

A pack of wolves is about to descend on Wolverhampton city centre. It’s all part of a vibrant new art project called ‘Wolves for Wolves’, which will see 30 wolf sculptures installed around the city’s points of interest – one being outside our very own Banks’s shop on Brewery Road. The project is the local council’s idea to encourage people to explore Wolverhampton’s best attractions by following the trail around the heart of the city.

The six-foot high fiberglass wolves are currently being made in Kidderminster, before being decorated and unveiled in March. Local artists and children are being invited to submit designs to decorate the sculptures, which will each be sponsored by the city’s prominent businesses.

With both Banks’s Brewery and Marston’s House being right in the heart of the local community, we couldn’t wait to have some fun and get involved with our own Marston’s wolf in situ! It’s a great way to show our support for the city and will also attract new visitors to our brewery shop.

Our wolf will be designed by local artist Sunita Meen, a graduate from Wolverhampton University, who also produced some original artwork as part of a competition for our recently refurbished office, Marston’s House. The wolf will take about three weeks to complete and will be auctioned for charity when the project ends in September.

Keep a look out for pictures of our designed wolf over the next few weeks!
