The Big Sleuth, Birmingham’s largest ever FREE public art trail has now launched!

For 10 weeks this summer, The Big Sleuth is bringing ‘Bear-mingham’ alive with colour and activity as colleagues, friends and families discover the giant sculptures hidden in the city’s bear-utiful open spaces and inspiring buildings! The free public art trail sees over 200 fantastic bears take up residence across the city and in local satellite trails.
Birmingham Wellbeing Service is putting on a range of fun ‘bear’ related activities alongside the Big Sleuth Free Art Trail this summer. The trail runs until Sunday 17 September 2017 and during the time the ‘bears’ are in Birmingham we want as many people as possible to visit the bears, check out our Big Sleuth activities and have fun!
