Event Info

Date & Time

August 10 - September 30

Arriving on World Lion Day we are proud to say that The Tusk Lion Trail has descended on the West End. Created and curated by The Tusk Trust and supported by Art of London, a phenomenal pride of lions is now in situ across London's West End, and seven other locations worldwide from Narobi to The Hamptons to raise awareness of the magnificence of lions, threats to their existence and the people and solutions working for their survival – raising awareness for conservation efforts across the world.

The sculptures have been designed by some of the most influential people in design, film, theatre and comedy as they come together to create their very own lion sculptures for the trail. The Tusk Lion Trail is a celebration of lions and the people who live alongside them, highlighting the threats currently faced by ‘the King of Beasts’, and is raising vital funds to support community conservation and livelihoods impacted by Covid-19 across Africa.

The London Pride includes a spectacular array of artworks from some of the world’s most prolific artists, musicians and comedians including Rolling Stones guitarist, Ronnie Wood, wildlife photographer, David Yarrow, artists Ian Davenport, Gavin Turk, David Mach, and actors John Cleese, Noel Fielding, Mathew Horne and Lee Mack.

The trail is in situ throughout August and is the perfect activity to visit with friends or family this summer.
