Cows about Cambridge

Cows about Cambridge

28 June - 4 September 2021

We're proud to be the Official Travel Partner of Cows about Cambridge, an upcoming art trail by Wild in Art and children’s charity Break. This free, family-friendly art trail will run from 28 June to 4 September 2021.

We've sponsored two life-size cow sculptures for the art trail, which will see over 40 large cow sculptures appear in the city’s streets, parks and open spaces. One of our cows will take pride of place at Cambridge railway station, while the other will be out grazing in the city centre. Artists Sian Ellis and Emily Pettitt created the artwork for the cows sponsored by Thameslink.

The idea for Cows about Cambridge is to bring communities together with creativity and encourage people to get outdoors and rediscover their city. Following the trail, many of the sculptures will be auctioned off to raise money for children's charity Break, including those sponsored by Thameslink.
