Wild in Art

A Wild in Art event brought to you by The Murray Parish Trust.

Westquay Shopping Centre hops on board with Hares of Hampshire Art Trail

Westquay Shopping Centre in Southampton have joined the Hares of Hampshire by sponsoring one of our giant hare sculptures. This spectacular public Wild in Art trail in aid of The Murray Parish Trust is coming to the cities of Winchester and Southampton this summer. 30 6ft high, beautifully painted Hares will pop up in the streets, public spaces and parks of both cities for 10 weeks starting on 16th June 2022.

‘’We’re really excited that Westquay is joining the Hares of Hampshire campaign this summer. Having played a part in previous animal art trails throughout the city and hosting our own Elephant Parade last year, we know that they are well loved by the local community and provide people of all ages a chance to explore their local surroundings in a fun way. We are delighted to be supporting The Murray Parish Charity as they raise vital funds to help treat children at Southampton University Hospital’’ – Laura Read, General Manager
