The Owl and the Pussycat: A Celebration of Culture

The Owl and the Pussycat trail is free to see in Knowsley for the next 10 weeks.

It is part of the region’s Borough of Culture celebrations and features 32 huge, elaborately decorated, owls and pussy-cats.

They are now out and about across the borough for people to spot and record on a free downloadable app.

Designed and decorated by artists and members of the local community, the huge creatures are in Knowsley’s open spaces and town centres – some of which you might not expect.

The trail commemorates the fact that Edward Lear wrote his world-famous poem – The Owl & the Pussy-Cat – during his time living at Knowsley Hall.

The Borough of Culture is part of the 1% for Culture initiative which commits at least 1% of the Liverpool City Region’s annual gain share (£300k) to cultural projects/activities.

Established as an annual award rotating around the boroughs, the Borough of Culture helps to celebrate, amplify and strengthen the existing cultural offer, develop new ideas and initiatives that will underpin future development and legacy.
