Mural Trail Brings Extra Colour To Weymouth
The Mural Arts Trail is bringing vibrant colours and images at focal points throughout Weymouth, from various artists and styles.
Officially launching at the start of the Summer season in Weymouth, work is underway with the work. The trail is a joint project between the Weymouth Town Council and the We Are Weymouth (BID) group, to showcase the work of local artists and hopefully be staying for the years to come.

Dawn Rondeau, Chief Operations Officer at We Are Weymouth (BID) comments: “It is great to work in partnership with Weymouth Town Council in sponsoring this project, ensuring the entire geography of the BID is represented with incredible artwork, extending the trail to Bowleaze and Lodmoor through the town and South harbourside, to the Stone pier as well as the Nothe gardens.
“This wonderful opportunity to enhance the town and bring colour, as well as a reason to visit, will be used to promote the town to visitors whilst delighting the local population who live here. Our aim to enhance the look and feel of the town is coming to fruition and we see the trail as a legacy for years to come.”
The first one completed is called Life Beneath The Waves by artist, Georgia Green. She said: “My initial idea centres around a fusion of nature and childlike magic and is designed to complement the vibrant urban and coastal colours in and around Weymouth Pier, reinvigorating the building it covers with bold and lively paint.”
The Weymouth Town Council are backing this splash of colour. Cllr Ann Weaving, Mayor of Weymouth said: “It’s fantastic to see the first murals going up in Weymouth with more beginning to appear throughout the town over the coming weeks. It will provide a huge amount of pleasure to see local residents and visitors begin to explore and uncover their locations before the grand unveiling of all the artworks is revealed later in the summer.”
