Having Your Cake
I've shown you the Glass Umbrella and And The River Runs Through", two of the artworks around the town created by a group of young people, working with the Youth Offending Service.
"Have your Cake" focuses on the architectural design of Stockport Town Hall and celebrates some of Stockport's sporting successes. The Town Hall, nicknamed the wedding cake, was designed by architect Sir Alfred Brumwell Thomas,1908. Stockport is the birthplace of tennis player, Fred Perry winner of the Men's Singles titles at Wimbledon and the US Open 1936. Stockport Metro has enjoyed a long history of podium success and is one of the most successful swimming clubs in British history.
You'll find it on the wall of Life Leisure Grand Central Pools which provides fitness and swimming facilities.
