In a spectacular public art event that will bound across the region for 10 weeks in the summer of 2022, Winchester and Southampton will be brought to life with a drove of Hares and their young Leverets sculptures, creating a free, fun, family-friendly trail of discovery for everyone to enjoy whilst exploring our great cities.

Each sculpture will be sponsored by a business and individually designed by an artist – either well-known or just starting out, from Hampshire or further afield. They’ll hop into the cities on Thursday 16th June – before leaving on Thursday 25th August 2022. Then from the 2nd to 4th September, there will be the chance to say a final ‘goodbye’ at a Farewell Event before each Hare is auctioned to raise funds for The Murray Parish Trust.

There’s a way to go before the trail begins, but they hope you’ll join them and the Hares of Hampshire throughout summer 2022. Share in the excitement – and keep up-to-date with the latest news – on their social media channels using #HaresOfHampshire

Schools, colleges and community youth groups from across Hampshire have been invited to join in the fun and adopt and design their own smaller Hare sculpture – the Leveret. This is all  part of their county-wide Learning Programme for children and young people.
