HARE ALL ABOUT IT!
Hares About Town is a spectacular public art event in partnership with Wild in Art that will weave its way across Southend on Sea from July for 10 weeks in 2021. Hare sculptures, each one individually designed by an artist and sponsored by a business, form a free, fun, family-friendly trail of discovery for local people to explore and enjoy!
After entertaining and bringing people together, the legacy of Hares About Town continues as many of the sculptures will be auctioned to raise vital funds for a local charity Havens Hospices.
Be part of this unique event that will raise money for a much-loved local charity and deliver significant economic, social and cultural benefits to the town.
