Fosse Foxes

Fosse Foxes is a public art trail made of life-size fox sculptures; these creatures will be finding their way across Fosse Park and you have the chance to design and decorate your very own.

The competition will run from 19 October until 23 November. 15 applicants will be chosen to personalise a sculpture to be displayed to the public in April 2021. In your application, please let us know what Leicester means to you and how it has inspired you as well as a brief profile about yourself.

Why enter
The Fosse Foxes offer an exciting opportunity to showcase the talents of local artists and designers or anyone with artistic flair. Your name will be featured on a plaque next to your Fox and will also be included on our website, with details of the Fosse Foxes Trail and a link to your website (if you have one). Chosen artists will receive a contribution of £100 towards the cost of materials to decorate the fox. Get decorating!
