As history continues to be made in St George’s Square, we will be following Historic England’s High Street Historic Action Zone (HSHAZ) project, bringing you images of events that happen in the Square as well as its changing buildings.

The Place to Demonstrate

Since Victorian times there have been protests in St George’s Square.

The latest took place on Saturday 1st October 2022.

What colours can YOU see in the Square?

Thanks to Chol Theatre and to artist Helen Robinson we now have a wonderful colouring sheet and we would love you to complete it and send it to us.


It also contains information about how you can send the completed sheet back to us.

Find out more about artist Helen Robinson on Facebook and take a look at Chol Theatre and Arts Company’s website.

(This colouring sheet has been funded by Historic England’s High Street Heritage Action Zone cultural programme)
