Blasting its way across the city for 10 weeks in summer 2021, Leicester will be brought to life by an out of this world trail.
Opportunities to sponsor an event like Rocket Round Leicester happen once in a blue moon!
We’re looking for local, regional and national artists, designers and illustrators to help our Rockets soar.
Schools, colleges and community groups will also join in the fun, adopting and designing their own smaller Rocket sculptures.
LOROS Hospice are over the moon to bring our flagship fundraising event, Rocket Round Leicester, to the city this summer. A fleet of 40 giant Rocket sculptures will create Leicester’s biggest ever public art event from 19th July – 26th September.
Forming an unforgettable 10-week trail across the city’s streets and open spaces, these spectacularly-decorated sculptures will steer a voyage of discovery like never before. Each sculpture has been designed by an incredible artist and sponsored by a local business, and we can’t wait for you to join the fun!
The adventure doesn’t stop there as throughout the trail, there will be different weekly themes to explore with a tank-full of fundraising activities to experience – keep an eye on our Events page for details. After this, there will be the chance to say a final ‘goodbye’ at our Farewell Weekend on 9th – 10th October before each Rocket is auctioned to raise funds for LOROS Hospice.
Once the trail is live, you can download the Rocket Round Leicester app and begin your quest in unlocking all the sculptures! Until then, follow us @RocketRoundLeicester or join the conversation at #RocketRoundLeicester.
This unique event is brought to you and the city of Leicester by LOROS Hospice and Wild in Art.
