Shaun the Sheep trail dates

Shaun the Sheep in the Heart of Kent is an exciting free art trail that will see over 50 large individually decorated Shaun the Sheep sculptures placed around the parks, town centre and river walks in Maidstone and the surrounding areas. 

The Art Trail

The free family-friendly walking trail is located in the heart of Maidstone from Saturday 29 June to Friday 30 August 2024. The art trail is a partnership between Heart of Kent Hospice, Wild in Art and Aardman, the creator of the cheeky and lovable character Shaun the Sheep. Maidstone Borough Council is the Official Presenting Partner of the trail. 

Discover all 50 bold and eye-catching Shaun sculptures on the trail and take selfies with your favourites! Look out for Roaming Shaun who will be touring throughout Maidstone and the surrounding areas through the 9-week trail.   

It’s easy for everyone to take part in the trail, as the location of each Shaun is shown on the Shaun in the Heart of Kent map or via the free trail app which will be available just before the trail goes live on the 29 June (available to download from the App Store or Google Play)

Maps can be picked up the from two Shaun Shops in Maidstone town centre:

They are also available to pick up in locations throughout the town centre businesses including the Kent History and Library Centre and Maidstone Museum as well as at one of our 14 Heart of Kent Hospice charity shops
