Join us on a Bear Hunt!

Ten bear-illiant sculptures are coming to Kingston upon Thames at the end of March 2024.

Who’s ready to go on a bear hunt?

In partnership with Wild in Art and Walker Books, Kingston First have organised ten bear-illiant and unique bear sculptures to come to Kingston upon Thames! Based on Michael Rosen’s iconic children’s book ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’, you’ll be able to discover the bears in the town centre from the 29th March all the way up until the 7th June 2024. The ten bear sculptures are all hand-painted with never-before-seen artwork by different artists, each with a distinct theme.

The Bear Trail is free to attend and perfect for all ages – from families who are seeking fun activities during the holidays or any after-school entertainment to friends who want something fun to do outdoors during the spring! As the trail lasts for ten weeks, it’ll be running over the Easter holidays and the May half term, so it’s ideal for keeping the little ones entertained.

Kingston First is a business improvement district responsible for supporting and representing businesses in Kingston town centre and creating a town where businesses can thrive and people want to be.
