Elephants are heading for Lakeside!

THURROCK has had some interesting visitors over the last few weeks in the form of decorative elephant statues on their way to intu Lakeside. These beautiful hand painted elephants are part of a 30-strong herd that is making its way across Essex to the shopping centre in Thurrock.

Elephant Parade is a global public art festival, which brings together the worlds of art, business and charity to create vibrant public art elephant statues that are sold or auctioned to raise money for the Asian Elephant Foundation.

The tour has been made possible by intu, the UK’s leading shopping centre brand, and the elephant herd will be visiting intu Lakeside between 5th May and 1st June 2014 where they’ll be joined by six brand new designs created by Essex school children.
