Waddle of Worcester

Waddle with us this summer as Worcester transforms into a free, fun art trail when forty big penguin sculptures will go on display for eight weeks alongside forty chicks.

Each large sculpture has been sponsored by a business and individually designed by an artist – either well-known or just starting out, from the Worcestershire area or further afield. The penguin chicks have been designed by local schools and community groups.

They’ll waddle in on Monday, 22 July before leaving us all on Sunday, 15 September 2024.

After this, there will be the chance to say a final ‘goodbye’ at Farewell Events, before each big penguin is auctioned to raise funds for St Richard’s Hospice and each chick returns to its forever home with schools and community groups.

The great Waddle of Worcester is being brought to the city by St Richard’s Hospice and Wild in Art.

Around 80% of St Richard’s Hospice funding comes from generous people like you. Because of you we can put our arms around patients and loves ones in the most difficult of times, just as penguins huddle together when the cold winds blow.

Thank you for being part of the great Waddle of Worcester 2024 and supporting our hospice huddle today.
