A family-friendly fun day out in Chichester and Arundel
What’s the Big Hoot all about?
Watch out for 30 arty owl sculptures nesting around Chichester and Arundel in summer 2024. For eight weeks people of all ages will be able to discover these decorative art sculptures nestled in various locations across the two town centres.
Whether you’re visiting for the day, or you’re a local, young or old – there’s fun to be had for everyone! You’ll be able to follow the outdoor and fully accessible trail, finding each owl – which are all unique and tell a different story through their design.
An artistic showcase
Every owl will be uniquely designed by local and national artists, and we’ll also have a parliament of little owls decorated by local schools and children’s groups. These mini sculptures will be displayed in indoor venues around Chichester.
All of the large owls will be auctioned at the end of the trail to raise money for Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice.

“Businesses have to spend budgets wisely and it’s the best £5k we could ever spend. We would have to spend 4 or 5 times that amount if we were to pay for the amount of PR coverage that you get from doing one of these events.” Nadia Cowdrey, DMH Stallard – incorporating Griffith Smith.
