Follow That Duck has waddled to Hastings

Have you ever wondered what a 5ft rubber duck would look like?  Well, look no further – the familiar Rubber Duck has turned into a spectacular public art event that is now flapping, waddling and swimming from Hastings Old Town to Bexhill on Sea.

Grab your binoculars and your walking shoes and Follow that Duck!

For the next ten weeks, the  streets, gardens and beaches of Hastings, St Leonards and Bexhill on Sea have been taken over by a flock of fabulous Rubber Duck sculptures.

Each giant duck is hand decorated with individually created designs, many of which will showcase the wealth of artistic talent within East Sussex.  The trail is fun, family friendly and will play an integral part in the economic, cultural and social recovery of Hastings and Rother, enticing locals and visitors back into our beautiful local area.

After the trail, the Rubber Duck sculptures will be the stars of the Hook A Duck Auction, raising funds for our event partner St Michael’s Hospice.

St Michael’s Hospice provides high quality, responsive palliative care and bereavement support across Hasting and Rother, working collaboratively with others to improve end of life care for all. 

There is are trail maps and an app available to download so you don’t miss spotting any of the Ducks.
