The GAME Room gets a new look

11 October 2016

Talented local artist Joanne Prince has transformed a whitewashed wall in The GAME Room into a joyous Ewood Park crowd scene.

Children who now come to enjoy playing on the games consoles in the dedicated gaming area within the Blackburn Rovers Community Trust Family Stand will now feel as if they're actually playing on the Ewood pitch, thanks to the cheering crowd that now looks over them.
 
The GAME Room is available exclusively to families who purchase match or season tickets in the Club's newly relocated family section in the Blackburn End half of the Jack Walker Stand lower tier, offering greater access for fan and player interaction, as well as access to great facilities and goodies provided by valued partners such as GAME Blackburn and McDonald's.
 
Fergus Heyes from Blackburn Rovers Community Trust, who manages The GAME Room on matchdays, is delighted with the new appearance, explaining:

"We've seen some of Joanne's work first hand because her children regularly attend our holiday camps and player development centres, so when she offered her skills - at no cost - to create an exciting crowd scene on the wall, we were delighted to accept her offer.

"It adds even more depth and colour to the room, which is already an exciting place to be on matchdays because so many people are rushing in early to be a part of it.
 
"We're also very amused that she has taken the staff photos from our website and added most of the Community Trust team into the crowd - everyone has really enjoyed picking out their caricatures and feeling like part of something special that will be part of our stadium for years to come."
 
You can see how the wall transformed from a plain white background to a passionate blue and white scene by checking out the photo gallery on the Blackburn Rovers Community Trust Facebook page and the artist, Joanne Prince, can be found on the same network as 'D Bag Lady'.
