Blackpool 2024

Elmer’s Big Parade Blackpool – in support of Brian House children’s hospice

As the first Wild in Art event to come to the seaside town, Elmer’s Big Parade Blackpool will feature a colourful trail of 30 large Elmer the Patchwork Elephant sculptures.

To bring this unforgettable event to Blackpool, Wild in Art and Andersen Press have partnered with Brian House, the only children’s hospice on the Fylde coast.

As well as bringing people to the town and celebrating the diversity of local communities, the event will be raising much needed funds for Brian House.

Each large sculpture will each uniquely decorated by established and up and coming artists, creating a parade through the town that will be enjoyed by visitors and locals for eight weeks in spring 2024.

A herd of smaller Elmers will accompany the trail, decorated by local children and young people through schools and youth organisations. They will be displayed inside some of the town’s tourist, cultural and leisure locations.
