Elmer’s Parade has marched to Belfast

Elmer’s Big Belfast Trail can now be visited for free across Belfast for the next ten weeks.

Elmer and over 70 of his uniquely decorated friends have appeared to form the biggest-ever public art trail the city has seen.

Elmer has stomped to key landmarks and locations, from City Hall to Queen’s Quay, Writer’s Square to the Waterfront Hall and Titanic Quarter in a blaze of creativity. 

 You can also stop by the Elmer HQ at CastleCourt and chat to volunteers about the trail, buy Elmer souvenirs and enjoy bespoke artist workshops. 

A herd of mini Elmers, decorated by local schools, can also be found at indoor locations in the city centre.

After the trail, the big Elmer herd will come together for a few special farewell weekends in Belfast and Antrim in September.

After these come to an end, the Elmer sculptures will be auctioned off to raise vital funds for Northern Ireland Hospice; a charity that provides care and support for local babies, children and adults with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.
