Hares About Town
Time & Location
About the Event
Hares About Town is a spectacular public art event across Southend this summer. Huge hare sculptures, each one individually designed by an artist, will form a free family-friendly trail of discovery for you to explore!
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.
Will you spot the hare on Southend Pier? (Our hare is called the Funhare and was designed by Graham Collins and sponsored by The Echo). Trail maps are available in the Visitor Information Centre for a donation of £1. Find out more here and remember to download the app!
