Parade Gardens Bath, 31st October 2009 sees the unveiling of a statue of King Bladud + another of a King Bladuds Pig, carved from Bath Stone.

Group Description

King Bladud’s Pigs in Bath was a summer 2008 public art event designed to:

- Involve local businesses and the community in the arts
- Give local artists a showcase for their work and ideas
- Provide some fun for both visitors and the people who live here - who will become tourists in their own city!
- Raise money for a good cause.

One hundred individually decorated life-size pig sculptures will be displayed throughout the summer all around Bath - to celebrate the legend of King Bladud who together with his pigs discovered our hot springs and went on to found the city of Bath.

Each pig will be sponsored. Each sponsor will select an artist to transform the blank "3D canvas" of a pig sculpture, made of reinforced fibreglass, into a work of art. In October the pigs will be sold via a grand auction.
