Street artists have been invited to the area around the pier to create new work to brighten up the area.

It will also raise money for the Birnbeck Regeneration Trust.

Organiser Lin Toulcher said: “It has grown massively from last year.

“Some of the artists do quite traditional work. Others range from anything from cartoons to portraits.

“There is a real mix of everything.”

The artists will be painting the hoardings around the pier for the third year in a row.

There will also be a poetry jam and live music, a number of food stalls and artists will sell their work and crafts.

The spray jam will take place around the pier on August 12 and 13 at 10am both days.

On the Saturday evening, starting at around 6pm, people can enjoy some ambient music while watching the sun go down.
