Hares About Town
In 2021, Southend on Sea hosts the most spectacular arts event that the town has ever seen. Hares about Town sees 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 are popping 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 will be decorated with its own unique design, created by regional professional, emerging and amateur artists.
