In spring 2020, 30 large Hare sculptures, all uniquely decorated by artists, will appear in our streets, parks and open spaces. They will be exhibited for 9 weeks, forming a fun, free, family-friendly art trail for residents and visitors to follow. 

A feel-good campaign we can all be proud of, Hares About Town brings communities together to help them celebrate their town through creativity. 

Trail explorers young and old will have fun rediscovering their city, learning about the artwork, and spending time together. They will get outdoors, walk more and share their stories. 

And after entertaining and bringing people together, the legacy of Hares About Town continues as many of the sculptures will be auctioned to raise vital funds for much-loved local charity Havens Hospices.

But Hares About Town need you to make it happen...

Transform a three-dimensional blank canvas – the Hare sculpture – with your artwork. Join the art trail and have your work seen by hundreds of thousands of people.

They are actively encouraging submissions from the local and regional arts community. Designs are welcomed in any medium - traditional to new media, fine art to illustrations, graffiti and mosaic. Whatever the art form, they’re keen to add drama, fun and a creative flourish to Hares About Town!
