Hare we go

Join us on a trail of discovery through Royal Tunbridge Wells as our band of hares, accompanied by two slow, yet steady tortoises, race into position across the town and local parks.

Each large sculpture, individually designed by an artist and sponsored by a business, group or individual, will form a free, fun, family-friendly trail for people of all ages to explore and enjoy. But that’s not all. Our learning programme will allow smaller sculptures to be designed by local schools and community groups, and displayed in the town.

Working with Wild in Art, this colourful and exciting art trail will engage the local communities and bring thousands of visitors into the town whilst raising awareness of the impact Demelza has on children with serious or life-limiting conditions, and their families.

After the summer trail, the sculptures will be auctioned to raise money for Demelza where you will have the opportunity to own a hare or tortoise and make a difference to the future of your local children’s hospice.

Which sculpture will you get to first? #SlowAndSteady wins the race!
