Have you herd? For eight weeks in the summer of 2021, Worcester is being brought to life by a perfect parade of beautifully decorated elephant sculptures. Elephants – both big and small – are forming a stunning, free art trail through the city’s streets and open spaces, bringing together the community for one unforgettable event.
Each sculpture has been sponsored by a business and individually designed by an artist – either well-known or just starting out, from the Worcestershire area or further afield. They marched into the city on Tuesday, 13th July and will leave again from 5pm on Sunday, 5th September 2021. After this, there will be the chance to say a final ‘goodbye’ at a Farewell Event, before each elephant is auctioned to raise funds for St Richard’s Hospice.
We’d love you to join us out on the trail, following a six-mile route around Worcester. Trail maps can be found across the city including at Worcester Tourist Information Centre, The Guildhall and the Worcester’s Big Parade pop-up shop on Broad Street.
