Stampede by the Sea is coming!

In spring 2025, Bridport, West Bay, and Lyme Regis will be transformed into a giant art trail, which will involve the whole community.

The aim is to raise vital funds for Weldmar Hospicecare, as well as awareness of our services in the area.

A very special herd of elephants will be arriving in Bridport, West Bay, and Lyme Regis!

The area will be transformed into vibrant, fun, and free art trail that local families and visitors will never forget. Thirty striking and colourful elephants will be waiting to be discovered, each designed and painted by talented artists. The trail will conclude with each sculpture being auctioned for charity. Baby elephants will also be finding their way into local schools and learning venues, which will become their forever home.

Stampede by the Sea is raising funds for Weldmar Hospicecare, who provide specialist end of life care for local adults with a life limiting illness, and support for their loved ones.

Get involved!

There are lots of ways you can get involved before the trail starts. We’re looking to the local business community to partner with us in a number of exciting ways. Schools and other youth organisations can register for our Learning Programme, which includes adopting and designing their own Baby Elephant sculpture! We’re also looking for talented artists to sign up to our Art Programme, and get their creativity flowing so that our trail will be a memory nobody will forget.
