Stockport College has the ‘Midas touch'

Stockport College has the ‘Midas touch'

Ribbit. Ribbit. 

From the 29th June to 28th September residents and visitors to Stockport are being encouraged to explore the ‘Giant Leap’ art trail, discovering the giant frogs, each intended to represent a piece of Stockport’s past, present and future.

As those taking part will make their way from the start of the trail at Stockport Town hall, past the Hat Museum and following a short hop after the Light Cinema at Redrock, they will stumble across number 13 on the list – Midas, sponsored by Stockport College.

The project is a collaboration between Stockport’s Business Improvement District – Totally Stockport, local artists, Stockport based businesses and community groups, supported by Stockport Council.

Organised by Totally Stockport, Stockport’s Giant Leap celebrates the £1bn programme of investment and development that is regenerating the town, a giant leap forward for Stockport, creating exciting opportunities for business and a destination of choice for residents and visitors.

As Stockport’s Giant Leap Frog art trail represents the great changes that are taking place across the town centre, the Stockport College campus redevelopment is one of many golden highlights to come out of the areas radical overhaul. 

Work is already in full swing with the campus redevelopment, seeing the demolition of the former Art department and more recently the relocation of the college library facilities. The works are proposed to be ready for the 2020/21 academic year and will see an entire intake of new learners benefiting from new facilities and an learning environment that will reflect the industry standard teaching and course offering available at Stockport.
