Morph Spotted Out on the Town

Whizz-Kids has launched a fully accessible step-free art trail featuring dozens of eye-catching six-foot-tall sculptures of the animated character Morph.

The UK’s leading charity for young wheelchair users has teamed up with childhood favourite, Morph, creator Aardman and Wild in Art to create a trail around London’s famous landmarks.

The capital has been transformed by Morph’s Epic Art Adventure in London, with over 50 of the super-sized sculptures of the much-loved children’s TV character on display until August 20.

Located alongside some of London’s most iconic landmarks, each Morph sculpture has been designed and painted by a variety of celebrities and artists including Tom Fletcher, Ade Adepitan and Martin Dougan.

Morph, an iconic clay character, first appeared in 1977 in the BBC children’s programme Take Hart.

He was chosen as the canvas for the sculpture trail as he shares in the daily experience of many young wheelchair users, who find their freedom and independence limited by the world around them.

“We are thrilled to be involved in this step free art trail project as it not only provides accessibility for all to experience the beauty of art but also helps to raise awareness about our charity’s cause,” said Sarah Pugh, Chief Executive of Whizz Kidz.

“We strongly believe in the power of art to bring about positive change, and this project is a wonderful way to draw attention to our mission and impact more lives.

“At Whizz Kidz, we understand that having the right piece of equipment could change a young person’s life forever because it provides emotional well-being, confidence and helps reduce social anxiety as it enables disabled children to take part in more activities.

“This trail means that the whole family can get involved and enjoy a summer holiday experience all together. However, it is much more than that - our vision is to create a society in which every young wheelchair user is mobile, enabled and included.”

A Trail Map and app is available to help you find each sculpture and to unlock a series of rewards and fun facts.
