Leeds Forum

Feature Giant Park Bench

A giant bench covered in graffiti has landed in Leeds for two weeks only

Feature: Giant Park Bench

If you have walked down Briggate since Wednesday morning you might have noticed something a little larger than life. Perfect for those weary from their Christmas shopping, the giant park bench is a novel way to take the weight off your feet.

Built to celebrate the launch of Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-ZX1 compact camera, the fibre glass bench is big enough to seat 14 adults. Other publicity stunts have been planned across the UK which will see places like Edinburgh, Birmingham and London being adorned with giant traffic cones, post boxes and a giant pigeon.

And Panasonic are offering cool prizes, too. To win the opportunity to get your hands on free tickets to the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games, simply take your own picture with the bench and upload it to their Facebook page, which can be found here: www.facebook.com/8xlife.
