Elmers Big Heart of Kent Parade

Elmers Big Heart of Kent Parade

Exciting times ahead for Maidstone!

We are thrilled to be partnering with Wild in Art, the UK’s leader in the production of spectacular, mass-market, public art events, to deliver a new, high-quality tourist attraction in Maidstone for the public to enjoy from June – September 2020. The trail will be accompanied by a learning programme in schools, a community development programme and sponsorship opportunities for businesses – everyone will be encouraged to get involved!

For Heart of Kent Hospice, Elmer’s Big Heart of Kent Parade is an exciting and high-profile way to raise awareness of the Hospice and how we support and care for local people who have a terminal illness as well as their families. It will also raise much needed funds to support our work.

What will Elmer’s Big Heart of Kent Parade achieve in Maidstone?

Up and down the country, cities and towns have been transformed by the installation of Wild in Art’s spectacular mass-market public art trails. They have a proven track record in:

  • Boosting economic growth

  • Re-invigorating local tourist attractions

  • Instilling civic pride in local residents

  • Attracting new visitors to regenerated areas

  • Increasing the health and wellbeing of the local population through increased activity

  • Encouraging families to spend more time together

  • Raising vital funds to support local Hospices
