To have a life-size bronze statue of Daniel Lambert made by the well-known English sculptor Sean Hedges-Quinn and to install this in a prominent site in Leicester city centre, ideally Jubilee Square.

What we'll deliver:

  • A statue of Daniel Lambert one of Leicester's favourite sons
  • To add interest to (hopefully) Jubilee Square

Why it's a great idea:

Daniel was described on his gravestone as having an 'exalted and convivial mind', not just a very large man. He has been remembered with affection in Leicester for more than two hundred years. He has a room devoted to him in the Newarke Houses Museum, a statue of him is long overdue.

Steps to get it done:

The first actual book on Daniel 'The Daniel Lambert Picture Book' by Roger Street is now available from The Daniel Lambert Society has been formed to honour the memory of the great man, and to promote this by initiating and supporting projects to achieve this aim.
