After hanging murals in Wetherspoons in Rugeley Staffs last year, we were again asked to hang some wall murals by AFI ART LONDON at the new Wetherspoons Hotel in Corby, Northamptonshire.
Wetherspoons are currently converting the old Westgate department store in Elizabeth Street, Corby and part of the development is a twelve bedroom hotel.
As usual, the pub chain like to use old photos of the local area or the buildings as they once were. Just like at Rugeley, large wall murals depicting local history were required on the walls of the hotel rooms.
In Corby we were going to be hanging murals depicting the history of the local steel industry, the old town and the old Westgate dept store, which is going to house the new pub and hotel.
So myself, Matt and Dan went down to paper twelve walls in the bedrooms varying in size from 3m – 6m width and a height of 3.4m.
All the paper murals were supplied with accompanying photos of how they should look when complete, plus a plan of the rooms.
They all went up a treat, even though the site itself was unorganised chaos, as usual.
The pub was due to open mid November and the hotel part of the building was almost complete at the time of writing.
We have installed many murals for commercial and private customers, and would be happy to talk to you about your next project.
