Lions of Windsor 2019


Lions of Windsor 2019 Sculpture Trail
This summer a pride of sixty lions will be transformed by some of the world's leading contemporary artists and designers to create a magnificent public art sculpture trail across Windsor to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria
The life-size fibreglass lions will be transformed by leading artists and designers from around the world in a wide range of styles, from fine art to mosaics, street art and illustrations to abstract designs.
The high-profile designers include iconic fashion designer Dame Zandra Rhodes, Kaffe Fassett MBE, Lyora Pissaro, Andrew Logan, Anna Kompaniets, Craig Wheatley and Martin Brown, as well as less well known and amateur artists who have had the opportunity to submit their lion designs.
Lisa Todd, the event's Creative Director says, "We are over the moon that the Lions of Windsor 2019 sculpture trail has attracted some of the most famous names in art and design from around the world and encouraged new and amateur artists to send us their submissions. Windsor is already a tourist hot spot and we are confident that the beautifully decorated lion sculptures will make Windsor and the surrounding area the destination event of the summer for residents, visitors and tourists."

Lion Trail maps will guide visitors on a voyage of discovery around the Royal Borough's historic streets, venues, shopping centres, heritage landmarks, independent shops, museums and local attractions to view the eye-catching, supersized lions, designed by some of the world's leading artists and designers.
After three months of delighting lion fans of all ages, the giant pride will be auctioned in November.
100% of event profits will be donated to charities including the Thames Hospice, Look Good Feel Better, The Lions Club of Windsor and the wildlife charity Tusk, to support lion conservation in Africa.
