• Elmer's Big Parade

    Explore Plymouth this summer and track down all 40 elephants

Elmer's Big Parade Plymouth

Between 8th July and 15th September 2019 you can track down the 40 elephants whilst exploring or re-discovering Plymouth

 

For 10 weeks in the summer of 2019, a parade of 40 fabulously colourful and unique elephants will take you on a trail around the beautiful city of Plymouth and surrounding areas.

From the hustle and bustle of the city streets to the peace and grandeur of the Hoe, and from the green spaces of Plymouth to the spectacular coastline; Elmer’s Big Parade will navigate you around Britain’s Ocean City.

St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth is working in partnership with Wild in Art and Andersen Press to bring this mass participation, family friendly, art trail to life; featuring the much-beloved children’s character of Elmer, by Devon-born artist and author David McKee.

Alongside the original Elmer, there will be 40 further sculptures on parade; each featuring a unique design created by some of our amazing local artists, both well-known and emerging.

This is a fantastic opportunity to explore all the city has to offer whilst being enchanted, inspired and amazed by the sculptures themselves.

At the end of the summer, each of the beautifully designed Elmers will be auctioned to raise funds for St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth
