Look out for the sheep in the city

Look out for much much-loved children’s character Shaun the Sheep and his friends in an art trail around the city.

From Saturday 9 September more than 40 individually designed sculptures are being displayed around Brighton & Hove’s streets, parks and other public areas.

There will also be a new Shaun-inspired book bench at Jubilee Library and a roving Shaun sculpture displayed in Martlets Charity Shops while the trail is in place.

Bella Sankey, Leader of Brighton & Hove City Council said: “"We're giving a Baaa-righton welcome to Shaun and his friends.

“The Martlets is a much loved and appreciated charity in Brighton & Hove and all the more so for this engaging art trail.

“I'm particularly pleased to see the trail has been extended more widely across the city to give more children access to the fun.

“I'd encourage our residents and visitors to spend these last beautiful days of summer finding Shauns and raising vital funds for a good cause."

The free art trail is highlighting the work of Martlets in Hove until Sunday 5 November. The sculptures will be auctioned in aid of the hospice afterwards.
