A Wild in Art event in support of St Luke's Hospice.


We were inundated with artists who wanted to join the Elmer’s Big Parade Plymouth herd. We had over 180 original designs submitted, so it was a tough call to select the final 40. The artists are from throughout the UK and range from well-known names to aspiring art students. Here are the Elmer Big Parade Plymouth artists, find out about their inspiration and involvement.
