King Kong is coming home
This summer, Cordia Blackswan is bringing Birmingham’s infamous King Kong home in a celebration of the city being the host of the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
50 years after Kong’s first visit to the city, Nicholas Monro’s sculpture will return to Birmingham in his very own pop-up park: King Kong Park at Commonwealth Row.
Returning a key piece of Birmingham’s history
A 7m tall sculpture of King Kong, created by RoboCarv will form the centrepiece of the park. Identical to the original sculpture by Nicholas Monro and with the family’s blessings, we have worked hard to return King Kong to his original state and to bring him back to his rightful home here in Birmingham.
It’s time to go ape and get ready for an awesome summer in Brum. Join us from 22nd July for live Games, music, street food, King Kong, and more monkey business.
