Festival Pigeon has unfortunately gone missing from its original location on one of the High Street planters near to John Lewis. It was first noticed missing Tuesday 19 November. If you have any information as to its whereabouts, please contact the police on 101 quoting incident number 159 of 20/11/2019. Thank you.

David’s practice centres around colour and form. And so, to celebrate the standing of the town, David has chosen to highlight Cheltenham’s four festivals through colour – red, yellow, blue and cerise – painted in a way that highlights the pigeon’s spherical form

You may have seen some of David’s work around town before, including Faith, a bright orange ‘happy’ geometric sculpture, in Montpellier (part of Cheltenham Open Studios’ lamppost trail), and The Winning Bike, a multi-coloured, joyous arc, laden with bike wheels, created in collaboration with artist Glyn Griffiths and placed on Montpellier roundabout to celebrate the Tour of Britain stage finish on the Promenade, in 2017.
