        What you can do from here:

(1) Book a walking Tour of The People's Gallery with the artists who created it.

Cost is £5 each. Then return to our studio for a question and answer session and to view our permanent exhibition there. Admission free! On display are photos and images you will simply not find anywhere else. You can also pick up a copy of our book on our work. Again, you can only get this from our studio. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in our history or how the murals were created and the real, unabridged stories behind them.Tours and studio visits can be tailored to fit group's schedule.

Do note. The murals were created by us long before any tours were built around them. If you have come to learn about the murals specifically you are wasting your time and money getting on any other tour. It's that simple. Unscrupulous tour operators share an agenda to disparage the murals by treating them, not as the natural cultural expression of a history lived by three artists who witnessed the events we depicted, but as some sort of Hollywood backdrop to their cosmetic spiel on what happened here. Not one of them has contributed a brass farthing towards the upkeep of the murals that they profit from daily and none of the parties they represent have had anything whatsoever to do with the creation of the murals. Indeed, they have actively opposed any attempt by us in council to secure funding for their restoration.
