      The People's Gallery

The Bogside Artists' tour was the very first tour of the The People's Gallery to take place in Free Derry. The political images they painted are very different from the sectarian murals to be found in Belfast or anywhere else in the North of Ireland. They  speak for peace and sanity and are as far removed from gratuitous graffiti as you can get. There have since sprung up many tours in Derry.

What makes it so unique is that it is conducted by the three men who actually painted all twelve murals, ...... three men known internationally as The Bogside Artists.

The wall paintings stand like sentinels in the Bogside area of Derry, Northern Ireland, that saw so much the 'troubles' 1968 - 1998. These icons are among the most photographed, historical artworks in the world. Works that, as world renowned playwright  Brian Friel said..."Diego Rivera would be proud of."  Here is mural painting at its immediate best, speaking of Irish history, the struggle for democracy, of human tragedy and community pride. They speak of the Troubles in Northern Ireland as nothing else could.      

Get on the first and original tour. Visit The Bogside Artists, in person. They will be happy to greet you. If you have come specifically to learn about the murals any other tour is frankly a waste of your time and money and a misplace of trust in your 'guide'.

A TOUR of The People's Gallery costs £5 per person  (includes a question/answer session back at the studio where a permanent exhibition about the conflict is on view).

You will get to meet and talk with the artists as you walk in their company around the famous wall paintings they spent nearly a decade and a half creating. You will hear what it was like to grow up in The Bogside amidst The Troubles and what inspired these three men to paint their story and that of their community on the gable ends of a single street. If you wish to get on this tour we would strongly advise you to book directly by contacting the studio or by simply filling in the booking form on this site...  or you will  find yourself directed to a different tour entirely... one that may not even include the murals!      


Who better to tour them with... than one of The Bogside Artists who painted them, Tom, Will or Kevin? They will be happy to guide you around all twelve murals of The People's Gallery of murals and bring you back to our studio, if you so wish. You can book from this site.
