THE OWL AND THE PUSSY-CAT TRAIL

The Owl and the Pussy-Cat went to Knowsley…

This summer, Knowsley is hosting The Owl and the Pussy-Cat sculpture trail - a FREE fun, family activity for everyone to enjoy!

The trail is a celebration of Knowsley’s fascinating links to Edward Lear and a highlight of our year as the Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture.

Thirty-two huge and elaborately decorated creatures are located across Knowsley in parks, public spaces, town centres and other locations from Monday 20 June until Sunday 18 September.

Designed and decorated by artists with support from members of the local community these beautiful sculptures are spread across borough. Here you can follow the trail, find all the creatures, and record it on the FREE downloadable app. Don’t forget to stop for a selfie and share your pics on social media using #owlandpussycat
