We’re over-the-moon to announce our opening of the Rocket Round Leicester Trail Hub shop! Located in the upper-mall of Highcross Shopping Centre (near to Jo Malone London), the Trail Hub shop will be open from Thursday 15th July through to Sunday 26th September.
As Official Rocket Round Leicester Supporters, Highcross will home the Trail Hub shop for the duration of the art trail. Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about the trail and join our mission in having the best summer ever!
Earthlings can pick up their own Trail Map to accelerate their adventure in discovering all 40 giant Rockets sculptures and Junior Jets across the city. Official Rocket Round Leicester merchandise will also be available to keep a piece of the trail forever. Shop online here.
Landing in the shop will be a collection of Junior Jet sculptures to explore. These miniature sculptures have been created by young people as part of the Learning Programme – and they really will blow you away with their design!
The Trail Hub shop will be exhibiting Astro Liz’s homemade Vulcan Centaur model rocket. Seven-year-old aspiring astronaut Elizabeth “Astro Liz” Norman from Leicester will put the city on the moon this year as part of a historic mission where her “Astro Liz’s Lab” YouTube channel sticker will travel 384,400km to the Lacus Mortis lava plain on the lunar surface.
Visitors can also participate in exciting talks and workshops from our incredible sculpture artists throughout summer. Click here or follow us across social media to keep up-to-date with our astronomical event programme.
