It’s all been building up to this. The Grand Finale of Rocket Round Leicester will see our stellar fleet of Giant Rocket sculptures auctioned off to raise vital funds for LOROS Hospice at on Wednesday 13th October 2021.

With thousands of people having visited and explored the city as part of Rocket Round Leicester this summer, the auction will give you the opportunity to be a part of the legacy that the trail leaves behind, as well as the chance to actually take home one of our amazing giant Rocket sculptures.

Painted with such care by incredibly talented artists both locally and all over the UK, every single one of our giant rockets would make a beautiful addition to any garden, foyer, or open space. The trail may be finished, but their popularity will live on, creating a talking point for anyone that sees them for years to come.
