DERbY’s puBlic scuLpture TRAil

Welcome to the Derby Ram Trail; a spectacular free discovery trail coming to Derby in the spring/summer of 2021.

On 27 May – 22 August 2021, Derby Museums in partnership with Wild in Art are bringing a flock of 30 colourful and unique 5ft rams on a trail around the beautiful city of Derby.

Our ram sculpture is based on the mythical Derby Ram from the 18th Century song, which according to legend was ten yards high with enormous horns and a huge flowing fleece. We invite you to take a moment to enjoy a collaborative re-telling of the poem here. The story tells how people from all over came to see the huge Derby Ram, and we are excited that people will once again flock to Derby for the Derby Ram Trail.

Derby Museums would like to thank all of the wonderful collaborators who took time out of lockdown to film themselves delivering this piece. We hope you enjoy the boastful nature of the piece and visit Derby to enjoy the free family art trail from 27 May to 22 August 2021.

The Derby Ram Trail is brought to you by Derby Museums, together with Wild in Art and Presenting Partner, Cathedral Quarter Business Improvement District (BID). Wild in Art is a leading producer of creative events that transform places into free, family-friendly outdoor art galleries.
