Holst Street Art Style!

Next time you are passing North Place car park look out for the finished street art mural featuring Gustav Holst. The ‘exhibition’ is arranged by the Holst Birthplace Museum as part of their WW1 programme.

The installation includes letterpress posters created by Pittville School and the general public in response to The Balkan News (a WW1 era publication that Holst is likely to have read whilst in Salonika). The display also features a special portrait commission of Holst by Andy ‘Dice’ Davies, Street Artist and Director of the Cheltenham Paint Festival.
