Find out more about the trail
The trail is organised by North London Hospice, with support from Haringey Council and in partnership with Wild in Art, the leading producer of public art events connecting businesses, artists and communities though the power of creativity and innovation. You might have seen their Morph trail in central London during the summer of 2023.
Our trail will be made up of over 60 decorated owls for you and your friends and family to find. There will be about 30 large owls, sponsored by businesses and uniquely decorated by local and regional artists, and a similar number of smaller owls – our owlets – that are adopted and designed by local schools and community groups. The parliament of owls will swoop into Haringey on Saturday 17 August 2024 and will roost on their plinths until Sunday 13 October so you have plenty of time to discover them all. The owls will be hidden in plain sight, mostly outside on the streets and in green spaces, and the owlets will be nesting in shop windows and indoor venues. A trail map and app will be available to help you find all of the sculptures.
At the end of October 2024 there will be a chance to see the whole parliament in one place at our Farewell Event, before each large owl is auctioned to raise money for North London Hospice and the owlets go back to nest with their school or community group.
