Southampton Hospitals Charity

Over the summer of 2024, Southampton Hospitals Charity will be lighting up the South with a large-scale Wild in At event that promises to captivate your senses and ignite your imagination.

There will be 40 8ft magnificent lighthouse sculptures on display for eight weeks through the streets and public spaces of Southampton and Cowes, each one a unique masterpiece designed by artists both local and well renowned, creating a family-friendly trail of discovery for visitors and residents to enjoy and explore.

The lighthouses will then come together for a farewell event in September 2024 before being auctioned off to raise vital funds for Southampton Children’s Hospital.

The team are inviting the local business community to come on board and partner with them by sponsoring a sculpture that will be on display for eight weeks throughout the summer of 2024 before being auctioned.
