KEY INFORMATION


Leeds Hospitals Charity is working with creative producers Wild in Art to present Leeds Bear Hunt – a large-scale public art trail set to splosh its way across Leeds for 10 weeks from the 1 July 2023.


Decorated by local, national and international artists, designers and illustrators, 35 giant Bear sculptures will hide in plain sight on the streets of Leeds.


The Bears will form a family-friendly trail of discovery, bringing Michael Rosen’s iconic We’re Going on a Bear Hunt story to life, and taking visitors and local people on adventures around the city and surrounding open spaces.


Designed to celebrate the vibrancy, culture and creativity of Leeds, and to raise money for Leeds Children’s Hospital, the trail will be deeply rooted in the local community.
