The 2017 Cotswold Hare trail is a not for profit Arts Festival … read more about the festival. The hares, which are sponsored and individually decorated, are on display across the Cotswolds until September and will go to auction in October with the net profits going to charity. The main charity will be National Star, but the Cotswold Hare Trail will also support local historical projects in Cotswold towns. Watch this website, facebook and twitter for details of events during the summer.
Cotswold Large Hare Trail
The 85th (and last) 5ft hare has joined the trail. This hare, which is decorated by Stroud based artist Ed Swarez, can be found at the Goods Shed on Gumstool Hill, Tetbury. The 85 hares can be found in 28 villages and towns around the Cotswolds, use the ‘view all locations’ button attached to the map to help locate the hares [note that hares may be in or outside buildings]. Trail maps are also available from various locations *(see below). The trail runs until September, so there will be plenty of time to discover all the hares.
