A towering sculpture trail for Spring 2024

Welcome to Cambridge Standing Tall.

After the success of Cows about Cambridge in 2021, Break, together with delivery partners Wild in Art are bringing a brand-new sculpture trail to the streets of Cambridge.

We know it will be a tall order to top the last trail, but we’re sure these forty giraffes will capture the imagination of the hundreds and thousands of Cambridge residents and visitors who we expect to journey across the trail next year.

The trail won’t just be encouraging you to look up at the spectacular art on offer, but all proceeds will support Break, a charity working in Cambridge and Cambridgeshire to raise the aspirations of the county’s young care leavers.  We hope as you gaze up at the giraffes in Spring 2024 you see them as we do: a representation of Break, standing tall for young people with care experience and telling them that the sky is never the limit.

This trail will be made possible by the community of organisations, businesses, individuals, schools and artists. If you’d like to be a part of making this trail happen, then get in touch.

Browse through the website to find more about the trail, if you’d like to be the first in the know, don’t forget to sign up to our newsletter, 'The Telegiraffe'.
