Windsor's lions will be saying goodbye to the town soon - after three months of 'roaring' success.

The pride of life size lion and cub sculptures have been displayed across the town to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria's birth and raise money for local charities.

The sculptures have been transformed into unique works of art by leading artists and designers from around the world including Hong Kong, Paris, New York and Thailand.

International and local artists involved included, the iconic fashion designer Dame Zandra Rhodes, Thai jeweller and member of the Thai Royal Family, M.L Rojanatorn Na Songkhla and Burberry, designer and children’s author/ illustrator Lisa Stickley and award winning Windsor residents Lisa Todd and her daughter Liv Clarke.

It was all organised by Megan Witty and Windsor Resident Lisa Todd to raise money for local charities.

The 'sculpture trail' will end on Sunday, October 27 when the sculptures will be removed.

The Lions Roar Goodbye auction preview will see all them all displayed in the old Fenwick store at Windsor Yards Saturday, November 9 from 10am to 6pm, Sunday, November 10 from 11am to 5pm.

After this a charity auction will be held on Thursday, November 28 - when the 38 lions and cubs will be sold off at an event hosted by broadcaster and comedian Tim Brooke-Taylor OBE and conducted by Christie's Auctioneer Hugh Creasy, with live performances by 'Lion King' and 'Motown the Musical ' performers David Albury and Cherelle Williams.

Tickets are £70.
