Toast In Towcester - Costa Coffee Launches With Celebrity Slices

Towcester today played host to a live Toast art installation. Toast artist Nathan Wyburn covered the newly opened Costa Coffee on Watling Street with giant celebrity portraits, literally on pieces of Toast.

The toast was applied to boards and from a crib sheet for each celebrity Nathan used Marmite to create the artwork.

In the end celebrities included David Beckham, Cheryl Cole and Stephen Fry on the right hand side with Alan Carr and Rowan Atkinson featuring on the left.

The artwork marked not only the opening of the new Towcester store but also the nationwide launch of the new breakfast menu.

Nathan worked away one slice at a time and seemed quite happy with all the press attention that he was getting.

The artwork will no doubt further confound people on how to pronounce Towcester, or perhaps it will help. Toaster.

The new Costa Coffee opened last week and is open 7 am to 6 pm Monday to Saturday and 10 am to 5 pm on Sundays.

Poor quality AudioBoo of The Mayor of Towcester's interview, quite a bit of traffic noise for mobile phone!
