Altrincham to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with ‘Trooping the Corgis’ Art Event
1st – 30th June
As part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations, Altrincham BID is working with Inch Arts to produce Altrincham’s largest town-wide art event, ‘Trooping the Corgis’.
The parading troop of fifty life-sized corgi sculptures will be on guard throughout June and will be displayed in the windows and foyers of shops and businesses around the town making the exhibition accessible to everyone.
Mandy White, Altrincham’s BID Manager explained, “We’re incredibly excited to be working with Inch Arts on this project. This is a unique opportunity for Altrincham and there has already been a lot of interest from the business community who are keen to get involved with this ambitious project.”
Jo Cushing, CEO Inch Arts explained, “Altrincham Corgis will be creatively designed and decorated by twenty-five specially selected inspirational artists. A further twenty-five will be decorated by Altrincham’s valuable community groups and wonderful local schools, working alongside an artist, to inspire creativity and inclusivity in our amazing town”.
After the exhibition the Corgis will be auctioned to support public arts projects in the community through Inch Arts, a well-established Altrincham-based arts charity set up 12 years ago to promote and support positive mental health and wellbeing through creativity.
