Culture Weston will install the timber public art shrine designed by internationally renowned artist Morag Myerscough at Big Lamp Corner.

It is the first of a planned series of ‘shrines’ planned to appear on Weston’s High Street.  Intended to inject colour, capture the vitality and values of the local community the shrine will feature somewhere to site and a performance space. 

Managed by Culture Weston in collaboration with North Somerset Council, 21st Century super Shrines was launched in May 2021.  It is part of a four-year High Street Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) cultural programme, funded by Historic England, in partnership with Arts Council England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
