Public art event for Olympiad

Have your say

AN UNUSUAL public art event took place in Barnsley - when 500 coloured breeze blocks were toppled like dominoes.

The event at Gateway Plaza supports the Cultural Olympiad to coincide with the 2012 Games.

Organised by the council’s Arts and Museums Team and Newham Barnsley Partnership, the topple is the fourth in a series of five events to mark key dates until the Olympics.

First block was toppled by Julie Green, of Barnsley Drug and Alcohol Action Team.
