The stunt forms part of Kipling's Spark Your City campaign, where the focus is on changing up people's daily routine by transforming typically mundane city environments with bursts of colour.
it is designed to surprise those who pass through the area as part of their daily commute, and passers-by including families and tourists are similarly being encouraged to stop by and take in the view throughout the day.
The brand has teamed up with television presenter Helen Skelton for the stunt, who will be on hand to interact wiht members of the public until 10pm.
The Spark Your City campaign sees Kipling partner with inspirational women who are pioneers in their chosen field. It was launched in June with Radio 1 DJ Gemma Cairney, and additional events are on the cards.
