The 2017 Cotswold Hare trail launches on 25 March – watch this website, facebook and twitter for details of events during the summer. The hares will go to auction in October with the net profits going to charity. This year the main charity will be National Star, but the Cotswold Hare Trail will also support local historical projects in Cotswold towns.
Cotswold Hare Trail Countdown – just 2 days until the trail opens
Large 5 foot decorated hare sculptures will very shortly start to appear around the Cotswolds. Almost 50 hares will leap into view on, or shortly after, Saturday 25 March in over 20 villages, towns and cities around the Cotswolds. More hares will gradually come out over the next few weeks. The hare locations can be seen by clicking here and by using the ‘view all locations’ button attached to the map [maps will be updated as hares appear, in the meantime placeholders are shown in some locations]. The trail runs until September, so there will be plenty of time to discover all the hares.
