The Kentish Mural Park is located at Pioneer Crescent in Sheffield and is an initiative of the MuralFest Committee in conjunction with Kentish Council.
Each year nine artists compete in a public 'paint off' from Easter Sunday to the following Saturday. Each artist must complete a 2100mm x 4800mm mural, using the same poem as their murals central theme and inspiration. Each year a new poem is selected, meaning no two Mural Fests are the same.
