Born Free Forever will be in the park for the next three months and aims to highlight the plight of lions in captivity and in the wild

One of the city’s most beloved beauty spots welcomed 25 new temporary residents.

Yes, the lions have moved into the Newcastle exhibition grounds, but there’s no need to panic – they’re bronze. This inspiring art installation was erected to highlight the plight of captive lions in the wild, with just 20,000 remaining from 200,000 a year ago.

born free forever was unveiled on Monday April 4 by film star Virginia McKenna, who starred opposite her husband Bill Travers in the 1966 wildlife film born free. The couple played George and Joy Adamson and is based on their true story of rehabilitation and the return of orphan lioness Elsa to the wild.

Here are some of the best photos from the new Born Free Forever exhibition at the Newcastle Exhibition Centre. The exhibition will be presented from April 4 to June 30.
