Starting from ‘the carpet salesmen’ statue, outside the House of Sport on Broad Street, Brumicana took us under the skin of the big, alive, people-eating monster; showing us the sorts of things you need to know in order to get to grips with a city. To survive it.
In fine fettle, Jon and Danny led us through statue confessions and favourite carparks to interesting rear-views of a couple of landmarks: the new library and a silent clocktower (we waited to hear the bongs, but none came).
We walked through narrow, bin-lined passages and heard tales of generosity before gathering atop the Queensway. Here I got distracted by a Rushmore-esque line-up of Danny, Jon, Ben and Ian-from-Flatpack. This seemed to be a fitting image with which to wrap up the programme:
We urge you all to tame the concrete and the glass. Don’t just survive the city, but make it yours and thrive on it!
