Get Set for Giraffe Journey with Worcester Stands Tall

Thousands of visitors are expected to flock to Worcester this summer to admire 28 majestic giraffe sculptures which will be towering over the city.  

For ten weeks from 9th July to the 16th September the beautifully decorated giraffes will transform the city in a family friendly art trail.  Businesses and organisations from across Worcestershire have signed up to sponsor the 28 giant giraffe sculptures – with another 25 smaller giraffes being decorated by schools and going on display in Crowngate Shopping Centre.

At the end of the trail, each large giraffe will be auctioned to raise money for the St Richard’s Build 2020 appeal. The giraffe calves will be reunited with their schools as a lasting legacy.

Artists, both local and national, submitted imaginative designs to clothe each sculpture which will be unveiled when the trail goes live.

Trail visitors will be able to buy a special Worcester Stands Tall interactive app for their phone or pick up a trail guide from venues around the city.  A children’s activity book will also be available.

Tricia Cavell, Fundraising Director at St Richard’s said: “Worcester Stands Tall will be an amazing adventure for the city and is hugely important to St Richard’s Hospice.”

“We want to raise a smile, inspire civic pride and give people the chance to get active whilst raising a significant sum towards our Build 2020 appeal. “

Worcester Stands Tall is a Wild in Art event brought to the city by St Richard’s Hospice.

Worcester Stands Tall is supported by presenting partners Worcestershire Ambassadors and Crowngate, education partner West Midland Safari Park and media partners Free Radio and Worcester News.
