If you’ve walked around the city centre recently then you’ve no doubt seen the colourful new additions of bear sculptures to our streets and local landmarks. All in aid of Birmingham Children’s Hospital, The Big Sleuth follows in the pawsteps of the successful summer 2015 fundraising campaign The Big Hoot which saw a polychromatic parliament of owls pop up around the city.

With over 230 stunning bear sculptures decorated by artists in collaboration with creative producers Wild at Heart and local businesses, charities and community groups; the Big Sleuth is a colourful trail of imagination, creativity and most importantly fun! Adults and cubs are encouraged to join in the bear hunt and follow the trail around Bear-mingham.

The Big Sleuth will culminate in a giant charity auction in aid of Birmingham Children’s Hospital where it is hoped they reach the soaring success of The Big Hoot which raised over half a million pounds.

Great Western Arcade is proud to host The Big Sleuth outlet store where you can get your paws on a wide range of official merchandise.
