Have you 'herd' the latest news?

Have you 'herd' the latest news? Elmer's Great North Parade is coming to Tyne and Wear in August 2019 - in support of St Oswald's Children's Hospice!

In 2016, our region was taken over by a pack of Great North Snowdogs, attracting over 670,000 visitors and bringing £16.5m to the local economy.

Together, with Wild in Art and Andersen Press, we're bringing another art trail to your door in 2019. Elmer will be visiting Tyne and Wear for eleven weeks, and will provide our region’s established and emerging artists with a brilliant platform for their talent.

Elmer’s Great North Parade features the little patchwork elephant from one of the most iconic and widely read children’s book series of all time. Written and illustrated by David McKee, Elmer was published by Andersen Press in 1989 and the brightly coloured patchwork elephant now features in a number of original stories, activity books, toys and on clothing.
