There are just 10 days left before the town’s special guests disappear.

The Pigs Gone Wild trail comes to an end on Friday, September 3 - coinciding with the end of the school summer holidays.

Over the summer the 40 large sculptures and the smaller junior versions have brought a touch of colour to Ipswich, wowing visitors and residents.

Hunters have been trekking back and forth across town looking for each of the pigs and many have completed the trail.

For those who have not managed to tick them all off, the pigs are being brought together for one final send off before they go under the hammer at aunction.

The farewell event, known as Ta Ta Trotters, is being held at the Corn Exchange in Ipswich town centre over the weekend of September 10 and 11, and all 70 of the pigs from the trail will be there for you see and have one final selfie with.

Tickets for Ta Ta Trotters, which are free but must be reserved in advance, are being snapped up and there are now only around 1,000 left.

Norman Lloyd, Pigs Gone Wild project manager, said: “It will be the first and only time you will be able to see all the pigs all together in one place, so if there’s one you missed on the trail or you can’t get enough of Major Tim Pig, Hide and Seek or Sir Bradley Piggins, get your tickets now.”

Voluntary donations to St Elizabeth Hospice will be gratefully received during the event.
