Love Where You Live: MISSION THREE!


MISSION 03 Banner | Love Where You Live


We’re on the search for the UK’s coolest and quirkiest curiosities and want to hear why you Love Where You Live! This week, we’re asking you to shout loud and proud about your local… artwork!

From strange street art and marvellous murals to stunning sculptures and statues, we want to know what curious creations can be stumbled upon around your way! We’ll pick our favourites to feature in our Amazing Art blog post.


Up For Grabs


As well as the kudos of being a TT #LoveWhereYouLive Ambassador, and the chance to have your local artwork featured for all to see, you may be rewarded with a prize!

All submissions featured on our Amazing Art blog will receive a Treasure Trails voucher. PLUS, our top pick will be awarded the MISSION THREE Star Prize: This fab Derwent Academy Sketching Starter Set – perfect for any aspiring artist out there!


Mission 3 Prize




Your third MISSION is to go art-spotting! Whether it’s strange statues, surprising street art, stunning sculptures, magical murals, barmy bollards, or any other curious creation, your assignment is to seek it out down your way!

And remember, art is in the eye of the beholder, so if something jumps out to you as a creative masterpiece, or an everyday item looked at from a different perspective makes the cut, then it’s fair game! Next time you’re out and about grabbing some local fresh air, keep those eyes peeled for sneaky artworks and take a photo of your best entry.

Submit your photo of what you’ve spotted, along with its details and yours, via the form below. 

Can’t get outside at the moment? If you’ve snapped something super creative in your local area recently, submit that instead; we’d still love to see it! Show us what your local area has to offer in the way of fab art, and you could be picked as one of our ‘favourites to feature’! 


MISSION THREE Art-Spotting Inspiration | Love Where You Live




All submissions need to be received by 11:59pm on Wednesday 18th November. So, don’t delay – comb around for those marvellous masterpieces today!  

We’ll announce our favourites and share our Amazing Art blog post on Thursday 19th November, and we’ll contact all winners directly. We’ll brief you on the details of MISSION FOUR then as well, so keep your eyes peeled!




Sorry! The MISSION THREE deadline has now passed, so we can’t accept any more brilliant and bizarre art finds – you can see the winners here. Don’t worry; there’s plenty more you can get involved with! Take a peek below to see what’s coming up…


Want to Get Ahead of the Game?


If you’re out and about searching for art and spot something cool or quirky, it might fit a later mission, so take a look at what’s coming up too: 

MISSION #04: Only down my way… events, eats and traditions that only happen in your neck of the woods! 

MISSION #05: Signs that make you go ‘ha’ or ‘huh?’ 

MISSION #06: Not a lot of people know this but… tucked away treasures or facts.
