The Chimps have moved to Eagle Brewery Wharf!

These adorable chimps have made Eagle Brewery Wharf their new home until June 2024

If you’ve been wandering down the river recently, you might have noticed that our lovely chimp sculptures from the Gillie & Marc ‘Chimps are Family’ exhibition have moved to Eagle Brewery Wharf.

The exhibition was brought to the town at the start of 2023 through a partnership of world-class artists Gillie and Marc and Kingston First, the town’s Business Improvement District, and will be in place until June 2024.

The ‘Chimps Are Family’ sculptures are designed to be interactive. The public is encouraged to get as close as they want, touching their faces, examining their hands, and giving them a hug. This unique form of public conservation is here to inspire love and connection.

Each of the chimps will be displayed with a QR code where the public can learn all about the individual chimpanzee and find important information surrounding conservation. They will also have the option to donate to save chimpanzees, with all funds going to WWF.

The chimps will be along the river until June 2024, so take a look while you can!
