Transported and Freshlinc are excited to announce the public unveiling of Fenland Folk, the second ‘Art on Lorries’ commission.

Join us in the company of Lincolnshire legends including Dame Sarah Swift, founder of the Royal College of Nursing, Frank Pick, designer of the London Underground and botanist Joseph Banks!

The launch at Springfields Event and Conference Centre will present all ten spectacular trailers together for the first time.

The stunning artworks created by Neil Baker and Steven Hatton of Electric Egg are inspired by significant local people and places, nominated by Freshlinc employees. The unique trailers will give people from Lincolnshire and beyond the opportunity to learn about the characters and history of the county, from the Dutch engineers who drained the Fenlands, to poet Jean Ingelow and architect and antiquarian William Stukeley.

The project follows the success of Alisha Miller’s bold, expressive depictions of
Lincolnshire landscapes, which have been touring Europe on Freshlinc trailers for nearly two years. Lincolnshire Loveliness has reported nationally, and the designs have recently been transformed into a collectable Corgi model.

We look forward to seeing you there!
