One of four signs designed to reflect the heritage of Prescot and the importance of the town on the world stage. The ‘Welcome Wanderer’ phrase, featured on all four signs, is a nod to William Shakespeare’s relevance to the town and the new Shakespeare North Playhouse. The concepts for the designs were developed following extensive consultation with the local community, as part of the wider Prescot Connectivity Gateway Arts project. Prescot’s rich industrial heritage, strong sense of community and history and the entrepreneurial spirit of local people were key themes throughout the consultation. This sign is themed around clocks and watches. The text reads ‘make use of time’, a quote from William Shakespeare’s Venus and Adonis poem.
