Brighton and surrounding areas were transformed by the arrival of over 40 super-sized sculptures inspired by the much-loved star of film and television, Shaun the Sheep.
Located alongside some of the city’s most iconic landmarks, each Shaun the Sheep sculpture was uniquely designed by artists from the region and beyond, providing a baa-rilliant family-friendly art trail for locals and visitors to follow.
A series of smaller ‘Little Shaun’ sculptures, adopted and painted by schools and youth groups, were also on display as part of the adventure.
Whilst exciting and inspiring people of all ages to celebrate the city through creativity, the trail also increased public awareness about hospice care and its importance and impact on the whole community.
was raised through the auction of the sculptures for Martlets Hospice. The overall total raised for the charity across the whole event was a fantastic £750,602.
