CowParade 2016 comes to Surrey Hills…

March 16th 2016
By: Melanie Hollidge

There are only a couple of months to go until the Surrey version of CowParade comes to our Surrey Hills. This is an opportunity for local schools and businesses to sponsor their own brightly coloured, life-sized cows which will be designed by their chosen artist, or decorated by themselves and then displayed on our Surrey Hills.
 
Alexander Creswell, and internationally renowned artist, has agreed to be the patron, and the Surrey Hills CowParade is hoping to attract the support of more celebrities, community groups and local businesses.
 
The cows will have the chance to graze around various parts of the county from May to August before being herded up for the Surrey Hill Food, Drink and Music Festival where they will be auctioned off. All money raised from this event will go into local Surrey charities, including the Surrey Hills Trust Fund, enterprise schemes, and individual charities chosen by the cow sponsors.
 
One of the great advantages of this event it the fact that cow spotters and sponsors will be able to track down exactly where their cows are, by downloading a specially created app and also find out who has created each one.
 
If you would like to get involved in this event and are looking for an artist to design your cow, then there are around 60 designs to choose from – there’s Poppy Cow 1 by Francesca Bex – geometrical design, Cowbra, by Dominique Salm, a zebra inspired design, Daisy Meadow by Tiffany Budd, with large daisy designs.
