Graffiti artists in Bristol have transformed a bowls club in the city in the hope of attracting younger members to the sport.

It's ahead of Upfest - Europe's largest urban paint festival which takes place at the end of this month.

The Greville Smyth Club will be just one of the many places in Bedminster and Southville to receive a make-over as part of the festival that's now in its sixth year.

Noticed the new art installation at Temple Meads?

If you're travelling through Bristol Temple Meads this week you might notice something different as you approach the station. A new art installation highlighting the city's famous graffiti culture has been put in place - and it's quite a contrast to Brunel's famous architecture.

It's to celebrate the launch of the latest project to regenerate the run down Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone. There are already plans for a 12,000 seater arena, now the Council want the public to make their mark too.
