Pigs Gone Wild, Ipswich 2016

Forty pig sculptures were dotted around the streets and waterfront of Ipswich as part of the “Pigs Gone Wild” art trail in summer 2016, in aid of St Elizabeth Hospice. The pigs, chosen to “celebrate Suffolk’s rich agricultural heritage”, will be decorated by local artists.

The iconic sculptures from Ipswich’s Pigs Gone Wild summer art trail were all auctioned off to the highest bidders and are now in loving homes.

The initiative raised £200,000 for organiser St Elizabeth Hospice, but it also brought in an extra £1m to Ipswich’s economy through increased visits and spending in the town.
