The Great Waddle of Worcester

Worcester
22 July 24  – 15 September 24
St Richard's Hospice
Overview

A waddle of wonderfully designed Penguins will slide into Worcester in summer 2024 to form the city’s third Wild in Art sculpture trail – raising funds for St Richard’s Hospice.

Forty big Penguin sculptures will line streets and open spaces for eight weeks, each sponsored by local businesses and brought to life with designs by artists from Worcestershire and beyond.

Another 40 penguin chick sculptures will also join the trail, designed and created by students and community groups.

After this, there will be the chance to say a final ‘goodbye’ at a Farewell Event, before each large penguin is auctioned to raise funds for St Richard’s Hospice and the chicks head to their forever homes with the schools and groups who made them.
