The work, designed by local artist Derek Jackson, has been painted on the wall at the Virgin Money Lounge on Castle Street.

It will be the fourth mural to be created through the City of Stories campaign, which is run by the Norwich Business Improvement District (BID).

And later this month, BID will be launching an international call for submissions from artists for more murals in the city centre.

Stefan Gurney, executive director, said: “We are excited to be unveiling the latest city of stories mural and are proud to be working with Virgin Money to showcase this stunning piece of work by Derek. We now look forward to launching our next call for submissions and bringing more art to blank canvases within Norwich city centre”.

Matt Tansley, Virgin Money Norwich Lounge manager said: “I am sure that they will catch the eye of many passers-by and I look forward to seeing Derek’s creation unveiled.”

  • The new one is good and in my opinion the best yet. I'm not convinced they are enhancing the city though both in terms of the aesthetics or development. BID seem to keep coming up with gimmicks as a way of achieving their 'raison d'etre' They suggest (on their website) " BID covers a defined area of the city where the team works to improve the trading environment and identifies additional projects and services that develop the city centre. Norwich BID enhances and promotes the local environment for its businesses, employees, customers and the community." Personally I fail to see how most of their initiatives strive to achieve this but I'll admit I'm not a fa of them - I think their funding and activity has little effect and could be put to better use
