The Mall Maidstone is excited to announce we are supporting the Heart of Kent Hospice this year with their Shaun in the Heart of Kent trail!

Following the success of Elmer’s Big Heart of Kent Parade in 2021, The Heart of Kent Hospice have announce they are bringing a second art trail to Maidstone and the surrounding area from 29 June to 30 August 2024.  Their second art trail will feature another iconic and much-loved character – Shaun the Sheep!

What is it all about?

Shaun the Sheep in the Heart of Kent is an exciting free art trail that will see over 50 large individually decorated Shaun the Sheep sculptures placed around the parks, town centre and river walks in Maidstone and the surrounding areas.  Each Shaun the Sheep sculpture will be designed and painted by local and national artists and will be accompanied by a flock of little Shauns decorated by local schools and community groups.

Named ‘Shaun in the Heart of Kent,’ they have partnered again with Wild in Art, the leading producer nationally and globally of these spectacular art events, and Aardman, the world-famous, award-winning studio based in Bristol, and creator of the cheeky and lovable character Shaun the Sheep. Maidstone Borough Council will be the Official Presenting Partner of the trail. Perfect for the summer holidays


Here at the Mall Maidstone we think we have the best two status but when the trail is launches you will be able to pick your favourites.
