THE cast of characters on a Southsea mural is getting more colourful.
Artists have been busy adding more figures to the Strand City map near the roundabout junction of Clarendon Road and Granada Road.
The new additions include a Victorian maid, Henry VIII and Robin Hood, all painted to the likeness of Portsmouth residents.
Mark Lewis, manager of The Lodge Arts centre in Portsmouth’s Victoria Park and co-ordinator of the project, said he was thrilled with how the mural was shaping up.
He said the project, started about five years ago, could go on for decades.
Mark said: ‘It’s the only one in the country that’s a never-ending mural.
‘We will keep adding more to it as the years go by. We use some of the best-quality paints in the world so this will last over 100 years.’
