Living Statues

The sprint will be held during the World Championship for Living Statues, which will take place on August 30th (sunday). The very best national and international living statues will be performing from 13.00 until 17.00 hrs. At the same time, the amateurs will compete for the National Championship. This will take place in the city center of Arnhem at walking distance of the Four Digits office.

At 17.30 the paradewill start. On the square in front of Church Eusebius, all the living statues will give their best for one last time. After that, the nerve-racking award ceremony will start. For the professionals and amateurs there are 4 diplomas in the categories 'content', 'craftsmanship', 'aesthetical sensation' and 'entertainment'. The best amateur will be awarded with the National title. The best professional will be awarded with the Grand Prix d'Arnhem and may be addressed as the World Champion Living Statues for a year.


About Arnhem

Arnhem has been one of the most attractive shopping areas in the Netherlands for years, boasting a range of large chain stores and little clothes shops. Arnhem has something for everyone, a number of well-known labels and designers such as G-sus, Humanoid, Viktor & Rolf and People of the Labyrinths have turned Arnhem into an attractive town for those with a passion for fashion.

Restored to their former glory and joined underneath one of the shopping streets, the 40 medieval cellars show you what underground Arnhem used to look like. The history of the town is reflected in the town centre itself as well as in 100-year-old Sonsbeek park, where you can take a rest in the heart of the town! The Church of Eusebius dominates the skyline. This late Gothic ogive basilica boasts a unique glass lift, rising to 73 metres and offering you a view of the attractive shopping centre. On your way up you will also see the biggest carillon in Europe!

The town also boasts a wide and varied range of museums - including ones on art, water, wine and history - as well as major attractions such as Burgers' Zoo and the Dutch Open Air Museum. Your day, evening or weekend in Arnhem should not end until you have been to Korenmarkt, the bustling entertainment centre. So whether you like shopping or going out, walking or cycling, visiting attractions or simply prefer more energetic pursuits, Arnhem is the place to be for an unforgettable stay!
