Let the stampede begin…

Ready, steady, choose your Elmer design!

Open to already committed and potential Elmer sculpture sponsors, the Artist and Sponsor Matching event is the much anticipated evening on the trail calendar.

Guests will hear why getting involved in the trail is a super-sized opportunity for your marketing and CSR plans, from Elmer sponsors Greggs and Northumbrian Water's Director of Corporate Affairs, Louise Hunter plus Gentoo and James Ramsbotham, Chief Executive of the NECC.

Afterwards, you’ll have the chance to make your commitment to the trail by placing your elephant foot on our map and view the 72 shortlisted artist designs.

Then it’s onto the main event – all sponsors will be invited to join our Stampede to secure their preferred design. Make sure you wear sensible shoes as it’s first come-first served, and there is bound to be competition for the most popular artworks! Once a sponsor has been matched with a design, its artist will be commissioned to paint the Elmer ahead of the trail starting on August.
