BUDDING Banksys are invited to submit designs for Bromsgrove’s BirdBox as the district council looks for artists to give the current mural a refresh.

Earlier this year artist Fred Yorke, and his colleagues from Modern Electric Tattoo Co, in Catshill, created the current BirdBox backdrop in a bid to deter vandals who struck twice in 48 hours, defacing the panels.

As Winter approaches the council want artists to submit new designs with the winning entry being recreated as the BirdBox backdrop.

Council leader Karen May said: “We have enjoyed the mural at BirdBox for some time now and want to build on its success.

“With the changing seasons, and our festive programme of events soon to be launched, we thought this was the perfect time to refresh the mural and wanted to involve our community in doing just this.

“I look forward to seeing the designs which our creative residents come up with!”
