For a third year running, Cheltenham Paint Festival has returned to Community RePaint to order ReColour remanufactured paint for the annual event.

The Cheltenham Paint Festival is a free street art trail around the town, showcasing a wide range of high-quality artwork in various painting styles from local, national and international urban artists.

This year’s event took place over the weekend of 30th-31st July 2022 and comprised 125 artists painting at 60 different locations around the town. All incredible works of art form a five-mile circuit that can be viewed free of charge throughout the year.

Artist and founder of the festival, Andy Davies, contacted Community RePaint again to purchase 200 litres of affordable white masonry paint from our ReColour range of remanufactured paint. This was used to prep walls and other outdoor surfaces around Cheltenham, ready to act as blank canvasses for the artists taking part in the festival.

The central Community RePaint team passed the festival’s request onto Community RePaint Wirral, run by Reciprico-UK, who were able to provide the festival with the ReColour paint required.

Our ReColour range of paint is produced in bulk quantities from leftover paint (perfect for projects requiring over 60 litres of paint), that is filtered, treated and blended to produce a high-quality range of emulsion, masonry and chalk paint, available in over 20 colours.

You can view galleries of past and present artwork from across the festival years on the Official Cheltenham Paint Festival website.
