The elephants have arrived! A herd of 58 elephant sculptures and 72 elephant calves have descend on Sheffield for the biggest public art event the city has ever seen!

The elephant sculptures, each uniquely decorated by artists, have descended on Sheffield’s parks and open spaces, creating one of the biggest mass participation arts events the city has ever seen. Can you find them all?

This exciting initiative is brought to you by The Children’s Hospital Charity and Wild in Art, uniting businesses, communities, artists and schools, leaving a lasting legacy for the city.

Join the stampede, celebrate the herd and make Sheffield Children’s Hospital even better!
