Guided Walk

A spectacular free public art installation is coming to Maidstone in the summer of 2021!  From 19th June to 21st August a herd of fabulously colourful and unique elephants will take you on a free walking trail around our beautiful County town of Maidstone. Elmer HQ can be found in The Mall and Fremlin's Elephant House on Fremlin Walk, where you can collect maps, donate and enjoy more information about the trails and artists. Download the app https://elmermaidstone.co.uk/app/  to find maps and competitions.

The 51 elephants are all beautifully designed and created by local and national artists on behalf of the Heart of Kent Hospice. Each elephant has been sponsored by a business or local organisation and will be for sale by auction in the late summer of 2021. So if you fall in love with a specific elephant you will be able to bid for him and keep him forever.

The location of each Elmer will be revealed via a beautifully hand-illustrated map available at key town centre locations across Maidstone or via the free Parade app available on 19 June. Each Elmer sculpture will have a unique app code that reveals some exciting rewards to download. 

The trail will incorporate Maidstone's vibrant town centre, the stunning river and some hidden gems.

Visitors will also discover Elmer’s Learning Herd, made up of 30 small Elmer sculptures, designed and painted by local schools and youth organisations from Maidstone and the surrounding areas. Plus, one special Elmer that has been designed especially for Heart of Kent Hospice.
