New mural featuring the famous Guinness toucan added to Nottingham’s social club ahead of St Patrick’s Day

A Nottingham social club has had a must-see makeover. The staff at the social club, described as “good for the soul”, have previously spoken about how determined they are to overcome the cost of living crisis.

Now the Greyfriars Social Club on Gordon Road in Thorneywood has a new look and is receiving positive attention in the community. Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, with the sponsorship of Bobbers Mill Dulux Decorating Center, a Guinness Toucan mural was painted on the Greyfriars Building.

Thanks to local muralist and artist Anthony Donnolley, who also goes by ‘Urban Canvas,’ the mural only took a few days to complete. Paul Reddington, the club’s manager, said: “The mural is certainly eye-catching and puts a smile on your face.

“The Guinness Toucan will be instantly recognizable to people of a certain age. We expect (the club) to be packed on St. Patrick’s Day.”

“In the past, St. Patrick’s Day has been a strange day, it’s a very long day but people have a lot of fun.” The mural has also drawn the attention of the Guinness company.

Saint Patrick’s Day is March 17. Paul added: “In the morning, we’ll be serving an Irish breakfast, hot food will be served throughout the day, live music and there will be food like Guinness beef stew.”
