Go on a Bear Hunt through central Birmingham!

Go on a Bear Hunt through central Birmingham!

There is an extra special reason to visit central Bear-mingham this summer as Central BID Birmingham installs its latest stunning sculpture trail.

Ten beautifully designed bears are on display across the city centre for families to enjoy, take photographs and support Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity at the same time.

The stunning trail will remain in place throughout the summer school holidays.

The We’re Going on a Bear Hunt art trail is inspired by the award-winning animation based on the much-loved picture book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.

Families can see the bears at Piccadilly Arcade, Great Western Arcade, Bullring, Mailbox, Corporation Street and lots of other city centre spots.

Central BID Birmingham is the Business Improvement District for the city centre retail and leisure area, and is working with art producer Wild in Art, and the world’s leading independent publisher of children’s books, Walker Books, to embark on this latest creative partnership for the summer of 2024.

Decorated by artists, designers and illustrators, the giant bears on the trail celebrate the vibrancy, culture and creativity of Birmingham, taking visitors and locals alike on a family-friendly trail of discovery around the city, highlighting iconic spots and hidden gems.

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is the latest in a series of popular sculpture trails installed by Central BID. Previous trails include Snowdogs Discover Birmingham, Brum’s Penguin Parade and Walking with the Snowman, inspired by the timeless stories of Raymond Briggs.
