Look out for Persey! 

While you’re exploring Cambridge, why not stick your neck out and look for Persey our younger (calf) giraffe?

The designs on Persey were inspired by Prep art lessons about the Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes.

Prep children enjoyed creating their own designs and painting these onto Persey.

Persey would love to meet you, so please go and say hello to him inside Heffers Bookshop in Trinity Street, Cambridge.
