Artists and art lovers

We’re in the process of choosing the dazzling designs for our elephant sculptures which will make up The Big Trunk Trail.

What an amazing spectacle it will be to see over 30 beautifully designed giant elephants trumpet along the free, fun and family-friendly art trail around Luton’s key landmarks, streets and open spaces, bringing together the community for one unforgettable jumbo event.

Every sculpture on The Big Trunk Trail will be decorated with its own piece of unique artwork – showcasing the wealth of artistic talent on offer in Luton and beyond.

Our design submission has now closed and we are currently in the process of shortlisting all the incredible designs we have received for the Big Trunk Trail and our herd of elephants.

Each design must be individually reviewed and as such the process takes a little time to complete. We aim to notify the first round of artists (those that are unsuccessful) the week commencing 4 January ahead of our design selection event on the 28 January where the final selections will be made by our wonderful sponsors.
