LOROS Hospice is over the moon to present their flagship fundraising event, Rocket Round Leicester, this summer. A fleet of 40 stellar Rocket sculptures standing at almost 8ft in height will create Leicester’s biggest ever public art event from 19th July – 26th September.
Forming an unforgettable trail across the city’s streets and open spaces for 10 weeks of adventure, these spectacularly-decorated sculptures will steer a voyage of discovery like never before. Each sculpture has been individually designed by an incredible artist and sponsored by a local business.
With a mission to have the best summer ever, throughout the trail there will be different weekly themes to explore with a tankful of fundraising events and activities to get involved in.
After this, there will be the chance to say a final ‘goodbye’ at their Farewell Weekend on 9th – 10th October, before the sculptures are auctioned to raise money for LOROS Hospice.
Once the trail is live, you can download the Rocket Round Leicester app and begin your quest in unlocking all giant and miniature sculptures for out of this world rewards!
This unique event is brought to you and the city of Leicester by LOROS Hospice and leading art event producers, Wild in Art.
