Bringing our sculptures to life

Before the trail launched, we asked creatives for all over the UK to submit a design for Elmer’s Big Parade Blackpool. We were inundated with fantastic artwork (247 submissions to be exact!) and had the challenging job of narrowing this down to a shortlist of just 61. Our trail Partners and Official Supporters then chose their favourite designs before being paired up.

For chosen artists, designers and illustrators, the art trail has offered an exciting opportunity to have their work showcased to a mass audience and in a truly unique way. They have played a pivotal role in bringing our Elmers to life; spending hours and hours of hard work developing their concept and painting their sculpture. And I’m sure you’ll agree, they look incredible!
