The Big Sleuth event follows The Big Hoot which saw decorated owls appear around the region before being auctioned off for the Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.

Once decorated, the bears will go on display for ten weeks in the summer.

Michelle McLoughlin, chief nursing officer at Birmingham Children’s Hospital said, “The Big Sleuth is really important to us as not only will it inspire civic pride and give families another opportunity to get active on a free and and fun day out, but we also hope to raise over £500,000 to support the pioneering work we do here each day.”

The project is being organised in partnership with Wild in Art, which has also worked on other projects in the city such as decorated benches around Birmingham City University.
