Warwick Court Leet inspires artist to feature “Leet Ale Amber” in town’s Colour Palette

Warwick Court Leet was chosen as the inspiration for one of the 24 colours that now make up The Warwick Colour Palette, a new piece of public art by Stacey Barnfield, on permanent display at Warwick train station.

The artwork is made up of several large colour swatches (see below); Each colour represents something that people who live, work, or visit the town suggested was synonymous with Warwick.

Representing Warwick Court Leet, Stacey chose “Leet Ale Amber” within the The Warwick Colour Palette to recognise the Court Leet’s place in Warwick history and as part of the town today.
