North Notts BID is encouraging residents and visitors to follow the new ‘BookBench’ sculpture trail that has been unveiled across North Nottinghamshire.
Available for the public to explore across the region, the North Notts Journeys ‘BookBenches’ have been created by local schools in partnership with artists and businesses, celebrating the region’s heritage while showcasing its creative talents.
The trail has been organised by North Notts BID in collaboration with Wild in Art – a leading producer of spectacular public art events – and includes 40 uniquely designed benches on display across Worksop, Retford, Harworth and Tuxford.
The benches can be uncovered using a virtual trail map, available to download on the North Notts Journeys website, www.northnottsjourneys.co.uk, or printed versions that can be picked up in shops and cultural institutions around North Nottinghamshire.
The trail will run for eight weeks throughout the summer and features a selection of vivid designs that celebrate the area’s rich literary history, promoting a life-long love of reading and coinciding with the return of the North Notts Lit Fest in September.
