A tower is coming.

Get set for Worcester Stands Tall a mass-participation public art event that will take Worcester by storm for 10 weeks in the summer of 2018.

From July 9 to September 16 Worcester’s streets, parks and open spaces will be brought to life by giraffes. Individually designed, beautifully created, majestic giraffes as you’ve never seen them before!

Why a giraffe?
Giraffes are majestic, but elegant, gentle but giant. They are sociable creatures but 
do not form herds, instead they meet in changing groups each day, rather as we do 
in our own communities.
Giraffes are the tallest mammals on earth and the collective noun for a group of
 giraffes is a tower!
The Worcester Stands Tall trail will inspire creativity and generate plenty of fun for all 
as you follow them on their journey around the city.

When Worcester Stands Tall is completed, the giraffes will be auctioned to raise valuable funds for St Richard’s Hospice.
