An eye-catching cityscape mural has been revealed in Norwich city centre on Pottergate in the latest chapter of Norwich Business Improvement District (BID)’s City of Stories project.
The Norwich Lanes are alive with colour as the Tesco Metro loading bay has been transformed with a quirky design by Norfolk-based illustrator Julia Allum.
The latest mural is inspired by Art Deco travel posters and features Norwich landmarks and local scenes.
Ms Allum said: “Norwich BID’s mural project is a wonderful idea, it brightens up the city and it’s a great way to showcase local artists’ work.
“There is such a wealth of talent in the city so I was stunned, yet delighted, when I heard one of my designs had been chosen.”

Ms Allum was one of three artists chosen by BID following an international call for mural submissions in the latest round of their City of Stories project.
The other two murals are set to appear at Castle House and Tickety Boo! in London Street over the summer months and are designed by artists Joey La Mache and Ella Goodwin, respectively.
Martin Blackwell, Business and Operations Manager, Norwich BID said, “We can’t wait to see the next set of murals enliven spaces in Norwich city centre.
“Joey, Ella and Julia have all created some incredible designs, which we are sure will create talking points for visitors and locals alike.”
The city already boasts four murals as part of the scheme to brighten up Norwich’s blank spaces.
