Venue: Exhibition Park, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE2 4PZ
Dates: 4 April - 30 June 2022
In honour of what would have been the 100th Birthday year of Bill Travers MBE, we are celebrating our fearless Co-Founder’s legacy by designating 2022 our 'Year of the Lion'.
Our year of action includes a UK-wide exhibition - Born Free Forever - with 25 stunning life-size, bronze lion sculptures touring the country to raise awareness and vital funds for lions through the Forever Lions Fund, set up in Bill's memory.
We're excited to announce that our second Born Free Forever venue will be Exhibition Park in Newcastle, where you can visit our pride from 4th April up until the end of June 2022. The exhibition has been brought to the Northeast in partnership with Urban Green Newcastle.
Please come and visit, marvel at the stunning sculptures and learn the true stories behind the Born Free lion pride.
We are proud to have joined forces with the world’s favourite monumental artists Gillie and Marc to present this landmark installation to raise awareness and vital funds for our lion conservation work.
