Burton Swans project will see twenty-five swan sculptures flock the streets of Burton upon Trent this August for ten weeks thanks to local ground engineering company, Roger Bullivant. Based at Walton Park, Swadlincote, Derbyshire Roger Bullivant is the proud sponsor of Burtons largest ever outdoor art trial. RB will provide concrete bases for the exhibit.
Each swan will be designed by a different artist, either established or up-coming; locals and visitors will be able to plan a route to visit the art trial, discovering the story behind each swan, its artist and sponsor through a mobile app. At the end of the 10 weeks, there will be a farewell ‘swan song’ event before the swans are auctioned off in October to raise money for Burton and District YMCA.
Cliff Wren, managing director, says: “As a local employer Roger Bullivant is always keen to support our local communities. We are proud to support Burton Swans to raise much needed funding for YMCA, a charity which promotes health and wellbeing for local communities across the nation.
Working with such initiatives likes this allows us to pool our strengths together with a vision to ‘shape the future’ where communities can thrive”.
