The Big Hoot 2024

The big hoot chs

The Big Hoot is the first free, large-scale art trail in Chichester and Arundel.

You’ll be able to visit the owls, which are all decorated by a different artist, while exploring the historic towns and surrounding areas of Chichester and Arundel.

There will also be a ‘parliament’ of little owls decorated by local schools and children’s groups.  These mini sculptures will be displayed in indoor venues around Chichester.

All of the large owls will be auctioned at the end of the trail to raise money for Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice.

Chichester High School is delighted to be involved and have created our own Owl.

Our Chichester High School sculpture, Hestia, is adorned with feathers individually designed by hundreds of our students. The prefects of Chichester High School painted her eyes in the national colours of child loss as a tribute to the amazing work done by Chestnut Tree House.

She is named Hestia after the Greek goddess of Home, hearth and family.
