The piece is Inspired by the 'Sergeant Pepper' album art these four murals are a celebration of 110 people born in Croydon, residents and alumni of institutions like our @thebritschool.
All in the music industry many like the @croydonfm are also very community orientated. There's very little in this town celebrating such people so hopefully this will shine a light on the wealth of music talent we have in contrast to the negative image Croydon is portrayed.
