Hares About Town is a spectacular public art event that is weaving its way across Southend this summer. 30 huge hare sculptures, each one individually designed by an artist, have formed a free family-friendly trail of discovery for you to explore! The hares are in place for ten weeks and are dotted all around the town!
In addition to the big hare sculptures there are over 50 Leverets (baby hares) that have been designed and created by over 40 schools and community groups across the Borough. The Leverets form their own trail in Southend's cultural hotspots.
With large and small sculptures located in picturesque hotspots across town, this FREE experience encourages you to get out and about and have fun while discovering the beauty of Southend.
After entertaining and bringing people together, the legacy of Hares About Town will continue for many years to come, as the sculptures will be auctioned to raise vital funds for a local charity Havens Hospices.
In partnership with Wild in Art.
