Derby Ram Trail

The Cathedral Quarter BID are very proud to be the Presenting Partner for the Derby Ram Trail.

The Derby Ram Trail is brought to you by Derby Museums, together with Wild in Art and ourselves. Wild in Art is a leading producer of creative events that transform places into free, family-friendly outdoor art galleries. After the trail has finished, the sculptures will be brought together for one weekend, the Ram-union, before they are auctioned off to raise money for Derby Museums’ Endowment Fund, helping to secure the future of Derby Museums.

The Derby Ram Trail is a free discovery trail coming to Derby in the summer of 2021. From 27th May to 22nd August, a flock of fabulously colourful and unique ram sculptures, each decorated by a different artist, will take you on a trail around the beautiful city of Derby.

More information about the Derby Ram Trail can be found on the official website alongside links to download the official app.

Here are a few sneaky peeks at some of the Rams being decorated!

Alongside the trail you can also get involved with a number of activities that the Cathedral Quarter BID has arranged working in partnership with the Trail Partner St Peters Quarter BID.  Read on for all the fun to be had!
