For the next three weeks St Pancras International is going wild with a number of events to save the tigers in association with Born Free. It all kicks off tonight (March 1) from 5.30pm and sees Tiger Tracks launch with a ‘Wild Night Out’ where Queen’s Brian May and West End sensation Kerry Ellis will perform a free, live, performance. Highlights of the coming weeks include a Veolia Tiger statue made entirely from recycled material and the chance to track tigers in their natural habitat (sadly without leaving the station or meeting any real tigers). Artist Benjamin Murphy will also be creating a giant tiger outline using electrical tape and he needs your help fill it in. In fact, there will be a lot of tigers being made out of random stuff including the ‘Tigers Are Not Rubbish’ competition. Station retailers will getting in the spirit by offering tiger treats including a limited edition Tiger cupcake from Peyton & Byrne, a tiger themed cocktail menu at Searcys Champagne Bar and Hamleys are doing a special cuddly tiger called Terrance.
