Have you herd about Elmer’s Big Belfast Trail?

This summer, from 20th June – 31st August, a herd of 70 uniquely decorated and amazingly creative elephant sculptures will pop up across Belfast city in key landmarks, streets and public places to celebrate 21 years of children’s hospice care!

The free, family-friendly art trail – a collaboration between Northern Ireland Hospice, Wild in Art and Andersen Press, brings David McKee’s popular children’s character Elmer the Patchwork Elephant to life through Elmer’s Big Belfast Trail – but we can’t do it alone. We need businesses, groups and individuals to be our partners in this exciting, first-time-ever event for the city!
