A Frogtastic

Stockport Summer

About One Stockport

Intro

24 July - 26 Sept

In case you haven’t noticed, the frogs have hopped back into Stockport for Stockport’s Gigantic Leap Frog Art Trail.

Bigger and better than ever, complementing Stockport’s GIGANTIC Leap Frog Art trail of 21 frogs across the town centre are 17 One Stockport frogs taking up residence across the borough!

So, as well as visiting the town centre trail, while you’re out and about over the summer months why not try and discover all 17 frogs across the borough too. You may also discover parts of Stockport you haven’t visited before.

Behind the Scenes

Bringing the
One Stockport
Frogs to life

Arc, a leading arts and mental health charitable organisation based in Hat Works in the town centre, have helped design and paint the giant frog sculptures. The fantastic designs are based on all the great ideas and suggestions put forward by local residents – many focusing on what inspired them during the last 12 months, places they enjoyed exploring and what they feel is important locally.

What are people saying about
the One Stockport Frogs

“It’s great to be apart of the Marple Indies (M’indies) frog which is named Rose. We went to go and meet her earlier.

Amazing thanks to Maria at The Hound Dog Grooming Spa for organising it all. Also come and look at our window display with loads of froggy books.”
