Eastbourne 2024

Elmer the Patchwork Elephant has come to Eastbourne for a celebratory anniversary visit – and has brought 11 of his Elmer friends with him. 2024 marks the 35th anniversary of the publication of the classic children’s picture book Elmer by David McKee.

The herd of Elmers, inspired by the town’s status as a centre of artistic excellence and home of this year’s Turner Prize, are in position from 10 February until 14 April.

Elmer will also be making a splash in the town when World Book Day is celebrated on 7 March.
