Following the hugely popular Monkey Trail in 2021 this year we bring you ships!
Over the summer the people of Hartlepool have decorated 29 ship sculptures.
This includes four by local artists:
Keith Robson – illustrator and comic artist
Mandascat – illustrator
Emily Carter – fine artist
Durham Spray Paints – street artist
Each brings their own unique style to the ships.

We didn’t have a theme for the ships, but we wanted people to respond in one of the following ways:
· To reflect on our maritime history
· To celebrate Tall Ships coming back to town
· To tell a personal story
· To say something positive about the town
· To tell us how you feel about the future.
Find your ship now!
The Ships will be on display until November. The fleet will come together again at the Wintertide Festival when hey will be auctioned to raise money for the Annexe.
