Big Hoot Trail

Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care, Cllr Paulette Hamilton, hopes Birmingham’s owl invasion can encourage more people to put their best foot forward on the road to a healthier lifestyle.

“You can’t fail to have noticed that Birmingham is currently playing host to dozens of giant multi-coloured owls; and, as well as looking beautiful, I’m convinced the 89 Big Hoot sculptures can provide a health boost by encouraging more people to walk around our wonderful city.”

The owls are located across the city and you can follow the trail from the City Centre to Sutton Coldfield; Winson Green to Bournville and many places in between.

Best of all, you have to get off the couch to see these wonderful owls in their full glory.

In the autumn the owls will be auctioned and the proceeds go to The Childeren’s Hospital, Birmingham.

In the Jewellery Quarter there are three very special visitors—Big Brown Inky Owl, Jewellery Owl and Bejewelled Owl.

If that isn’t enough the Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District have funded two; one in St Paul’s Square and one at the Jewellery Quarter Railway Station.

A third has been sponsored by the School of Jewellery and can be found in the Golden Square—and yes, they are the first three on the trail!
