Victoria Wood scale sculptures available to buy
Bury's Happy Festival will be taking place in Autumn 2021. Happy is an arts programme, with a festival at its heart and is inspired by the legacy of Bury-born Victoria Wood, her work and how she made her audiences feel.
On Friday 17 May 2019 a Victoria Wood memorial statue was unveiled in her home town of Bury. A limited edition run of scale sculptures of Graham Ibbeson's full-size piece are on sale to raise funds to pay for the sculpture.
Victoria was a great admirer of Graham's work especially of the sculpture he made of Eric Morecambe which is why Bury Council specifically commissioned him with the blessing of Victoria's family and Literary Estate.
The scale models are cast in bronze and mounted on a grey slate base and will have a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist. The cost is £1,500 including VAT (p&p charges may apply). Delivery will be 6-10 weeks from payment.
