Now Available – Big Hoot Souvenir Guides

The Big Hoot captured the imagination of everyone in Birmingham and beyond this summer, with hundreds of thousands of people taking to the streets with their Big Hoot Trail maps to explore the colourful invasion of individually designed owls. Taking in the city’s 10 districts, tourists and residents alike enjoyed their owl adventure, discovering and celebrating the extraordinary creativity produced by many of Birmingham’s artistic community and over 25,000 young people.

The Big Hoot Souvenir Guide is a celebration of the summer the owls took over Birmingham. With 96 pages, the glossy full colour guide features all 89 large owls along with the 122 school owlets created by Birmingham’s young people. It’s the perfect memento of this ‘owl-some’ event.

You can pick up your souvenir guide (RRP £9.99) in The Big Hoot Owltlet Shop in Great Western Arcade and the Fundraising Hub at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. You can also buy it online via and
