A NEW art hoarding by schoolchildren in London's East End together with internationally renowned artist Emily Allchurch is being unveiled tomorrow.
The 320ft-long hoarding with 114 panels along St Paul's Way in Mile End is East London's largest piece of public art.
It was created by Emily with the help of youngsters from St Paul's Way secondary school and Stebon Primary and St Paul with St Luke Primary schools.
The inspiration came from the regeneration of the area, which is to include a new secondary school, new health centre and 500 homes.

The unveiling tomorrow morning coincides with the first anniversary of Tower Hamlets council's 'Find Your Talent' arts programme for kids to put their artwork on public display.
