Hares About Town

Hares About Town is an extraordinary public art event which will take place from Thursday 1 July 2021 until Sunday 12 September 2021 and aims to raise vital funds for Havens Hospice.

Each Hare sculpture found along the trail has been designed by an artist and sponsored by local business, to bring local residents and visitors hours of fun finding them and exploring the trail.

In addition to the hunt, if you download the Hares About Town App, when you find a Hare and enter the four-digit code into the app, you will be entered into prize draws and competitions.

Once the event has ended, many of the Hares will be available to purchase through a public auction, which means anyone can take one of the spectacular Hare’s home with them.
