Cows about Cambridge is a spectacular public art event that weaves its way across the city from Monday 28 June to Saturday 4 September 2021. There will be 90 cow sculptures, each one individually designed by an artist and sponsored by a business, forming a free, fun, family-friendly trail of discovery for local people to explore and enjoy. During the trail, as well as the large cows, you can also spot a further 46 mini moos, dotted around the city created by schools, colleges and cowmunity groups.
Our very own Cambs East Mini Moo will be on display at the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences during the Cows about Cambridge trail. To find out the full sculpture trail, you can download the map (available from 23rd June).
You can book free tickets to visit the Sedgwick Museum from Thursday – Saturday through the booking system.
We cannot wait to see photos of our members with our mini moo! Please don’t forget to tag us on Twitter and Instagram @GirlguidingCE and share your photos to our Facebook page @GirlguidingCambsEast too.
And of course, in true Guiding tradition, what better way to remember your visit to experience the Cows about Cambridge trail than with an exclusive badge?
Badges have been collected since ancient times – Greek, Roman and Christian pilgrims to shrines made collections of miniature images of gods and goddesses or their emblems.
If you are, or ever have been, a member of the Girlguiding or Scouting movement, the concept of a camp blanket will be very familiar to you. It is a tradition used to document your Guiding or Scouting life, as well as an essential item for a cold night at camp! Camp blankets covered in badges are a warm and fleecy scrapbook of your journey and experiences, an historic document or folk art, personal to you.
Our Girlguiding Cambridgeshire East ‘Cows about Cambridge’ badge has been expertly designed by Sheila, a highly creative and talented volunteer from Cambs East. Anyone can order our badge – whether it’s as a fun patch to embellish an item of clothing or a bag, used in a scrapbook, a memory of a visit to Cambridge, or to add to your growing collection of badges on a blanket – it’s available for all. We think it’s a perfect memento for the Cows about Cambridge 2021 trail.
Order your badge at a cost of £1 plus p&p using the order form available here.
