A 24-hour project to rebuild and then destroy Dundee’s famous Royal Arch is well under way.
The People’s Tower event will see volunteers helping to recreate the city’s long-lost icon out of cardboard boxes before it is demolished in a spectacular finale on Sunday.
The event is open for anyone to get involved, with special access to the city’s new Slessor Gardens also on offer for any volunteers.
The People’s Tower: Dundee’s Royal Arch producer Clare Dow said: “All day today we’re going to be lifting and stacking boxes to re-do the Royal Arch.
“We want everybody and their granny and auntie to come down to help!”
If all goes to plan – and if enough people lend a hand – the structure should reach a full 17 metres in height, after which it will be used as the backdrop for a series of stunning projections throughout Saturday evening.
A similar event staged in Norwich in 2014 gives a sense of what is in store in Dundee this weekend.
To get involved, just make your way to Slessor Gardens at Dundee. Depending on the number of volunteers, the arch should be completed between 2pm and 4pm.
