Hares About Town, Southend on Sea 2021

In 2021, Southend on Sea hosted the most spectacular arts event that the town has ever seen. Hares about Town saw 30 super-sized Hare sculptures hopping their way into the town to raise awareness of, and funds for, local charity Havens Hospices.

Providing a thrilling opportunity for adventurers young and old, the Hares popped up on an art trail in many of the popular locations around The Seafront and the High Street as well as enticing people into Southend’s more hidden gems of local history and culture. Each 1.6 metre Hare sculpture was decorated with its own unique design, created by regional professional, emerging and amateur artists.
