The People’s Tower back to all events

Work alongside artist Olivier Grossetête to create a monumental cardboard structure inspired by the Guildhall. Over 1,000 boxes will be used to build this 20m high masterpiece and Olivier needs the public’s help to assemble the building blocks of this giant tower.

Following a week of drop-in box building workshops, members of the public will be invited to help build the tower on the Saturday and then welcomed back to topple and destroy it on the Sunday. Come and take part in all, or some, of the fun.
