Oakland Cali Bear – Oakland Gallery, Victoria Road

A throw back to a time before the real development of street art in the area. It’s uncertain who actually painted the Cali Bear which now sits over the Oakland Gallery.

A LARGE mural portraying The Beatles running towards the former site of the Tower Ballroom will be unveiled in New Brighton this weekend.

Based in the town's Victorian Quarter, the Mason Street mural will be unveiled on Sunday, September 1 at 3pm.

The Fab Four performed at the Tower Ballroom 27 times between 1961 and 1963 and the artwork is hoped to symbolise hope and regeneration of the area.

 Art by Alexander ‘New Brighton Beatles and the Tower’ – Mason Street

Based on artwork from the late Tony Booth the image on Mason Street remembers the old posters promoting music at the former Tower ballroom. In particular it features silhouettes of the Beatles, who played 27 times at the venue. Shown running along the bottom of the wall they are portrayed as being late for a gig. Sadly the tower ballroom has long since gone and the mural was painted to commemorate 50 years since it burnt down in 1969. The mural is the third to be painted by local artists led by ‘Art by Alexander’ in the area.

Ever penny makes the water warmer’.
