Big Fun Art Adventure 2024

We’re delighted to announce that in the summer of 2024 North London Hospice and Wild in Art will bring an exciting and iconic art sculpture trail to our community – Big Fun Art Adventure!

More than 30 giant owl sculptures, alongside a parliament of 30 smaller owlets designed by local schools and community groups, will hide in plain sight on the streets and in the parks of North London in the summer of 2024.

Each owl will be sponsored by a business and individually designed and decorated by local and regional artists, designers and illustrators. Each sculpture will celebrate the vibrancy, culture, and creativity that North London has to offer.

The owls will form a fun, family-friendly trail of discovery for visitors to enjoy and explore for eight weeks in the late summer of 2024 and will highlight iconic spots and local hidden gems.

The owls will swoop into North London in August 2024 and after eight weeks on their perches, there will be the chance to say a final goodbye at a special farewell event where all the owls come together before the owls are auctioned to raise money for North London Hospice. The owlets will be returned to their forever nests with their school or group.

Get involved

“Big Fun Art Adventure is a fantastic opportunity to bring our local community together and draw in guests from further afield. It is also a brilliant chance for us to connect artists and residents with local businesses through the power of creativity, whilst helping to make a difference to those who need us.” Declan Carroll, CEO North London Hospice

A lasting legacy

Did you know that at the end of the trail all of the large owl sculptures are auctioned to raise money for North London Hospice? The smaller owls – our owlets – are returned to their forever homes with their school or community group.
