The Big Hoot 2024

Get ready for Chichester and Arundel’s first large scale outdoor art trail!

30 big and 30 small owl sculptures will be swooping into public green spaces, Chichester high street and harbour, and Arundel’s historic town centre during the summer holidays, providing a fun and FREE day out for the entire family.

This public art trail will run from 10 July – 1 September 2024, plenty of time to find our 30 unique owls, all designed by a different artist. You’ll also have the opportunity to view all the owlets, designed by local schools and youth groups as part of our Little Hoot learner programme.
