SeaChange Arts are calling for nominations for a Great Yarmouth community champion to take their part in two murals being commissioned for the town and supported by the heritage lottery fund.
The murals will be used to decorate hoardings around the St George’s Chapel development. The work depicts key points in Yarmouth’s heritage and cultural life, from earliest beginnings, through maritime and tourist heritage up to its focus in 1960s youth culture with the Mods and Rockers.
The murals are being created by Bristol based artist Silent Hobo. A character-based artist who works on large-scale street murals, Silent Hobo’s work mixes comic art influences, graffiti and Manga. His work is featured on buildings around Bristol and has been exhibited at The Tobacco factory in Bristol and Selfridges in London.
Silent Hobo will work on the 30-metre mural for St George’s Chapel during two visits to the town over the coming months. The work will be created on panels, which will be attached to the hoarding around the chapel during its renovation into a multi-purpose arts centre. It is expected these will stay in place until major works are completed. Following that, individual panels will be donated to various groups around town with the successfully nominated local figure receiving the panel featuring them.
As the murals will exhibited in the King Street area and are part of the ongoing regeneration project there, SeaChange Arts would like people to nominate community champions from the King Street and Middlegate areas. “We’re looking for someone who’s an unsung hero, someone who enhances their community, environment or who supports the work and lives of others,” explained Sarah James. “They could be a neighbour, a friend or a relative, perhaps someone who works tirelessly for charity, the environment or inspires in any aspect of life.”
Nominations can be made by emailing their name and 100 words explaining why they’ve been nominated to mailto://David1@seachangearts.org.uk Alternatively, nomination forms can be picked up in venues along King Street.

What a huge shame that the concert given by the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne last night at St.Nicholas Parish Church wasn’t better advertised. The musicians were superb and their pleasure in performing was an absolute delight to watch. The programme was wonderful – Antonio Vivaldi, The Four Seasons, Summer and La Notte; Mozart, Salzburg Symphony; Tchaikovski Elegie; Bach, Suite No2 in B Minor; and Paganini, Moses Variations. The Chamber Philharmonia chooses for its repertoire highly demanding pieces of popular and unknown works “to inspire people across the world to enjoy classical music”. Though there were not many in the audience, they certainly showed their appreciation. The accoustics are good in St. Nicholas and the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne include Great Yarmouth in their annual tour – so something not to be missed next year!
