Wes and Edward’s Tribute to Jeff Hall

Wes Harding and director Edward Zheng have paid tribute to Blues legend Jeff Hall during world immunisation week (24 – 30 April). 

2019 marks 60 years since Jeff tragically passed away from polio in 1959. Wes and Edward visited a newly commissioned street painting in Digbeth to commemorate the life of Hall.

The right-back’s death sent shockwaves across Birmingham and the football world. Polio is close to eradication thanks to devout campaigning by Jeff’s late wife Dawn, who dedicated her life for a mass vaccination against polio.

The mosaic on Lower Trinity Street was signed by Wes and Edward.
