The 2017 Cotswold Hare Trail is a not for profit Arts Festival. The hares, which are sponsored and individually decorated, are on display across the Cotswolds until September and will go to auction in October with the net profits going to charity. The main charity will be National Star, but the Cotswold Hare Trail will also support local historical projects in Cotswold towns.


Civic Society members have been ‘doing the trail’ and photos of the hares they have found are published here. So why not search one out this summer and send us your photos.
