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.”
