Ay Up Duck – Stoke On Trent City of Culture 2021

We were very excited to be selected as a partner agency for the Stoke On Trent City of Culture bid 2021.

As part of this fantastic campaign we created a HUGE 30ft inflatable rubber duck as well as 16 smaller 4ft ducks that were floated on the cities various lakes. The whole reason for the duck is that Stoke has a rather famous saying of “Ay Up Duck”. So the rubber duck has become the friendly face of Stoke On Trents bid to be City of Culture 2021.

The giant duck is about to embark on a city wide tour to help promote the Bid, whilst the smaller ducks have taken up residency on the many lakes and water features in the city’s parks.

Bloon are managing all aspects of the tour, which will include light switch on events across the 6 towns that make up the city, as well as community events. To add to the appeal of the giant duck (which we have nick named Eddie, after strong man Eddie Hall) it has been fitted with super bright LED lights to make sure he really stands out at the events as night falls.

If you have a campaign that you would like to add some real wow to call a Bloonist today for an informal chat about how we can help you achieve the results you’re looking for.
