Hares of Hampshire

Type:Outdoor Event

High Street, WINCHESTER, Hampshire, SO23 9GH
A Hare sculpture outside Winchester Cathedral to launch Hares of Hampshire event.


What a fantastic way to explore Winchester and Southampton this summer with the spectacular public art event ' Hares of Hampshire', organised by the Murray Parish Trust and Wild in Art.  In place for ten weeks from the 16th June to 25th August visitors will be able to 'race' around the cities of Winchester and Southampton searching out these beloved hares.

Each sculpture is sponsored by a business and individually designed by an artist – either well-known or just starting out, from Hampshire or further afield. 

Search out the 'drove of Hares' and their 'young Leverets' sculptures before they 'hop' off on Thursday 25th August.  This free, fun, family-friendly trail of discovery is both great fun and a great way of exploring these two South East cities.

Hop on over to Winchester this summer, download your trail sheet here.  Leap over to Southampton this summer, download your trail sheet here.

There will be a farewell event from the 2nd to 4th September, with the chance to say a final ‘goodbye’ before each Hare is auctioned to raise funds for The Murray Parish Trust.
