From the Forge & Fern in Bristol city centre to Wake the Tiger attraction in St Philips - the full list of locations for where more than 50 unicorns will be located across Bristol can be revealed by Bristol World.

The Unicornfest arts trail begins this Saturday (July 1) with the beautifully-crafted sculptures appearing outside shops, attractions and parks across the city and the wider region. Ahead of the launch, a map and phone app are being released so people can find each sculpture.

The unicorns have been mostly painted in the former TK Maxx store at the Galleries by local artists having been sponsored by people and organisations, with proceeds going to Leukaemia Care. The trail follows similar events with gorillas and Wallace and Gromit.

How is Unicornfest being launched

For the launch day, IKEA in Eastville will hold a family event outside the store with face painting and a Victorian fair. There will also be two unicorns on display, as well as a small herd of smaller unicorn foals decorated by local schools.

How to find the unicorns

A map will be provided in a phone app - but for now we have been given the full list of locations. We’ve created an interactive map below where you can get the location name, artist and sponsor by moving your mouse cursor over a red dot. You can also zoom in on the map by pressing ‘control’ and scrolling in with your mouse.


How long will the event last

The event will end on September 3 with a Farewell to the Unicorns Festival at Propyard from September 23 and 24. An auction will follow of the unicorns on October 5, with proceeds going to Leukaemia Care.
