The unique display of urban art is being put in place ahead of the launch of Larne Spring Festival on March 29.

This is a six-week programme of events, running in association with Larne Traders’ Forum and Larne Renovation Generation.

It will see outdoor music and entertainment, a pop-up cinema, outdoor cafes and family entertainment in the town centre until May.
