Hare and Seek in Cirencester

The wonderful Cirencester Hare Festival trail of around 50 giant hares, is now adding the new 'Hare and Seek' trail of small life size hares.
This will be great fun for hare-spotters! From 24th of May until 27th of June small decorated hares will be hidden inside Cirencester shops, cafes and offices open to the public. You will need to collect a ‘Hare and Seek passport’ from the Visitor Information Centre or Information Point at the Town Council Offices in Binhgam House. This passport  will be available from the 27th of June once all the small hares have gone into hiding!.
Then you can set out to find them all! Your passport will be stamped by the retailer each time you successfully locate a small hare. Enter your accurately stamped passport into the prize draw!  The ‘Hare and Seek’ trail will end on September 14th and the result of the prize draw will be announced on September 30th.

I have created a special life size hare for the Hare and Seek trail called 'Party Hare'! He's a colourful fun character who likes to go to every party and even help out while he's there. His black coat is a magnetic blackboard so he's very useful for writing special messages on or holding little notes!

Books About Town

My Charles Darwin  bookbench design is now finished. It will be winging it's way to London  very soon to become part of the wonderful Books About Town trails.

Organised by Wild in Art and the National Literacy Trust the project will see dozens of book benches  placed on the streets from 4th July to encourage people to read and support the work of the Literacy Trust.

The special book benches painted by artists and illustrators are all celebrating books that have a connection with the capital, and  they will be auctioned in the autumn to raise funds for the the Literacy Trusts's many important projects.
The bookbenches will be out until 15th Sept, so take a book and enjoy the summer in London!
