Meet at St. Peter's Hall for a cuppa, a few words on inspiration and the classic short film Pearl, Florrie and the Bull.

Then wander down to Pearl and Florrie's Way for the official launch of the new 15m mural running the full length of Pearl and Florrie’s Way - named in honour of identical twins, Pearl Mills and Florrie Ward, providing beach access from the corner of Beach Road.

Just before their 80th birthday, the twins were out for a Sunday stroll when they were attacked by a bull.

The story reached a wider audience in 2003 when Kāpiti Coast animator Phill Simmonds completed his first hand-drawn animated short film Pearl, Florrie and the Bull in which the twins tell the story of their near-death encounter with an angry bull.

Seventeen years later, in what could be the world’s first ‘musical mural’ Phill is retelling the story – this time in paint and song.
