Elmer's Big Heart of Kent Parade


A spectacular free public art installation is coming to Maidstone in the summer of 2021!  From 19th June to 22nd August a herd of fabulously colourful and unique elephants will take you on a free walking trail around our beautiful County town of Maidstone.

There are over 51 elephants all beautifully designed and created by nationally and internationally renowned artists on behalf of the Heart of Kent Hospice. Each elephant has been sponsored by a business in the local area 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 trail will incorporate Maidstone's vibrant town centre, the stunning river and some hidden gems.
