Farewell to Aldgate Morph

Author: Izabella Kasinska


We are sad to say goodbye to the Morph sculptures that have been scattered around London sine June, as part of Morph’s Epic Art Adventure, the UK’s first step-free art trail.

We saw 56 6-foot tall sculptures of much-loved children’s TV character, Morph brighten up the streets of London. They were located alongside some of London’s most iconic landmarks, each sculpture was uniquely designed by well-known and emerging artists, which provided a fun family-friendly art trail for locals and visitors to follow. A series of smaller ‘Mini Morph’ sculptures were also adopted and designed by schools which were displayed as part of the trail.

Aldgate Connect BID was proud to join the other City BIDs in being the Official Community Partner for the trail, supporting Whizz Kidz, the leading charity for young wheelchair users.

Now that the Morph sculptures are at the end of their epic adventure, they are being auctioned to raise vital funds for Whizz Kidz. Whizz Kidz supports young people by providing the wheelchairs, equipment, support and confidence-building experiences they need, and campaigning for a more inclusive society. They hope to raise enough funds in the auction to allow 100 more young wheelchair users across England, Scotland and Wales be mobile, enabled and included.

The Morph App saw some incredible statistics, including a total of 11,402 app suers, 424,947 Morphs collected with Aldgate Morph being collect 4,341, 8,600 sculpture votes with Aldgate Morph ranking 16th out of 90.

Our Aldgate Morph, ‘Whizz Bang!’ was designed by Jess Perrin and draws on the feeling of excitement and wonder that children experience at a party. Featuring a rainbow base with spiky stars, circles and shapes, carved out using dark navy paint, making the shapes really pop.
