LADY WELLINGTON HAS ARRIVED!


Throughout June 2022 The Hive by VH Interiors will be the custodians of "Lady Wellington" one of the fifty life-sized Corgi sculptures on guard throughout Altrincham.


As part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations, Altrincham BID and Inch Arts have teamed up to produce Altrincham’s largest town-wide art event, ‘Trooping the Corgis’ as seen on the BBC.




The parading troop of fifty life-sized corgi sculptures, decorated by artists, will be on guard from 1st to the 29th June and will be displayed in the windows and foyers of shops and businesses around the town making the exhibition accessible to everyone.




Trooping the Corgis maps and guides are available in the Summer issue of Altrincham Today which can be picked up from pick up points in the town including The Hive by VH Interiors, Booths Hale Barns, The Travel Shop at the Interchange, Altrincham Market and The Everyman Cinema.


If one of the Corgis captures your heart, you can go to the Auction Event to have your chance to bid for your favourite Corgi. The Auction will take place on Thursday 30th June at Altrincham Town Hall and will be hosted by Darren Proctor. This event is FREE to attend and tickets are available on Eventbrite.



Lady Wellington was designed by 4 incredibly talented students from Wellington High School: Martha, Elodie, Isabel & Lucy and created by Michelle Taube.


Mrs Kearney from Wellington High School said: "We are so incredibly lucky to have been paired with such an amazing artist.


Michelle came into Wellington only a few weeks ago. She listened to our students, looked at their designs, took in all their ideas and has created the most magnificent Corgi. It’s really something else!
