Rocket Round Leicester

One small step for man, one giant leap for Leicester!

A spectacular public art event that will blast its way across the city for 10 weeks in summer 2021 to raise funds for LOROS Hospice. It will be the biggest that Leicester has as ever seen! Leicester will be brought to life by an out of this world trail of giant (almost 8ft tall!) and spectacular Rocket sculptures that will form a family-friendly, free art trail through the city’s streets and open spaces, bringing together the community for an unforgettable event.

All 40 sculptures will steer a voyage of discovery and have each been sponsored by a business and individually designed by an incredible artist. The trail launches on Monday 19th July with a stellar programme of fundraising events to enjoy over summer, before blasting off on Sunday 26th September 2021.

After this, there will be the chance to say a final ‘goodbye’ at a Farewell Event, before each Rocket is auctioned to raise funds for LOROS Hospice to enable them to continue to care for over 2,500 terminally ill local people.

Get ready to Rocket Round Leicester with us by following @RocketRoundLeicester for all the latest updates and sneak peeks of the Rocket sculpture designs!
