Hampshire Hogs is a special art sculpture trail for summer 2021. 17 Hog sculptures, beautifully designed and painted by local artists, inspired by Hampshire’s people, places and heritage, will be displayed in and around Basingstoke for all to discover by chance, or with the special app. The trail will launch on 10th August 2021, and finish in mid October. Our artists are busy now, creating their wonderful designs on their life sized Hogs!
Follow the trail and discover the Hogs
Safe Summer Family Fun
The Hogs will be out and about in August and September 2021 and will be accompanied by this website and a fun, free to download app. After the event, the Hogs will then be auctioned in aid of a local charity.
Summer fun in 2020 was blighted by Covid19, and we are determined that 2021 should be different.
This project is outdoor, self-guiding through the free app, so easy to social distance and fun for all the family.
It doesn’t rely on venues being open and people can enjoy it 24/7 without having to touch anything – apart from their phone to access the app guide.
So even if we are there are restrictions in place the trail can still go ahead, in fact it can be part of everyone’s staycation plans!
Own a Hog
If one of the Hogs has taken your fancy, then why not come and bid on it at the charity auction in October.
Not only could you have your own unique piggy work of art, but you will be supporting a great cause too.
