The newest branch of Bridgnorth-based vintners Tanners has opened in neighbouring Cheshire – and it’s taken a little bit of Bridgnorth with it. In the tasting room of the Chester branch of the wine merchant is a painting by local artist Tiggy Beaman. The huge artwork, which depicts bottles of the instantly recognisable Tanners Claret, was commissioned by chair James Tanner after he noticed Tiggy’s artwork at the Stable Bar on Whitburn Street. He said, “We’re pleased to support emerging young talent – I see a bright future ahead for Tiggy.”
Tiggy, the daughter of Bridgnorth butcher Richard Beaman, is studying Fine Art at Loughborough University.
