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.
