Luton’s ‘unforgettable’ Elephant Trail to Flaunt the town

The Big Trunk Trail 2021 would feature an “unforgettable” elephant sculpture trail. The basic aim is to flaunt the “unexpected treasure” of an “up and coming” town.

This event will be held in Luton from July 10 to October 8. The proceedings from the event would be used to raise funds for Keech Hospice Care.

It features 42 small and 31 large artworks, with two as an honor to Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain, who was born there.

She applauded the organisers for “bringing such an incredible event to the town”.

“As a mother, I know how hard it is to find things to do with the children over the summer holidays, so something outdoors, creative and free is perfect,” she said.

The winners of the competition to find a child and adult designer for her elephants, which have not been revealed yet, will have a cake, birthday, and baking theme.

She has already chosen the winners and they have been painted by an artist, the charity said.


Liz Searle, the hospice’s chief executive, said:

“We chose elephants as a group of elephants is known as a memory; it fitted perfectly as this year we’re celebrating our 30th anniversary of delivering outstanding care.

“A hospice isn’t just about dying; we’re about living and making the most of the time we have left.

“Luton is an unexpected treasure; there is a lot for people to see; we are delighted to be showcasing and providing something exciting in what has been a difficult time.

“The town is up and coming; it’s really developing; it has a strong, diverse community who are passionate about their identity and where they live.”


The sites where these sculptures will be placed include Wardown Park, Stockwood Park, the Town Hall, the railway station, the football club and Park Street.

Linsey Frostick, chairwoman of Love Luton, the trail’s presenting partner, said: “It’s like nothing the town has ever seen.”

She said one of the messages that the parade conveys was “don’t forget what you’ve got on your doorstep”.

Large elephants will be auctioned to raise funds for the hospice after the trail ends.
