March of the Elephants

Lichfield, Tamworth and Sutton Coldfield
1 July 24  – 8 September 24
St Giles Hospice

From 1 July to 8 September, the streets, parks and open spaces of Lichfield, Tamworth and Sutton Coldfield will be home to over 60 beautifully designed elephant sculptures.

30 large elephant sculptures have been designed by local and national artists – both well-known favourites and newly emerging talent, and sponsored by local businesses. Plus, you’ll also be able to admire more than 40 mini members of the herd, designed by local schools and community groups.

The free art trail is a special event that promotes health and wellbeing, brings businesses and communities together and helps boost the regional economy.

The trail’s aim is to raise significant funding towards St Giles Hospice so that they can continue to provide their services for those who need them the most.

About St Giles Hospice

St Giles Hospice is a registered charity founded in 1983 by the Reverend Paul Brothwell, originally to improve the care of local people dying with cancer. They now support people in the community whose illnesses may not be curable such as cancer, motor neurone disease, heart failure, MS and respiratory disease. They also offer support for families and helpers.

The dedicated team provides individually-tailored care either at the hospice or in patients’ own homes across their communities.
