St Richard's Hospice - The great Waddle of Worcester

Summer 2024 will see Worcester transformed into a free, fun art space as a waddle of wonderfully designed penguins slide into residents’ hearts and camera rolls.

About this event

Dates, address & more

From Monday 22 July until Sunday 15 September 2024, around forty large yellow-eyed penguins will go on display for eight weeks alongside forty chicks, creating a trail through the City’s streets, parks and open spaces.

The large penguins will be sponsored by businesses and brought to life with designs created by artists from Worcestershire and beyond. While the chicks will be lovingly decorated by local schools and community groups, from across the county.

Just like their giraffe and ele-friends before them, the St Richard’s Hospice huddle is on a mission to unite the city and create lasting memories along the way.

The trail is approximately five miles, using the route suggested on the trail map.

This equates to around 13,500 steps and will take around two to three hours to complete.

The great Waddle of Worcester is supported by Presenting Partners; Crowngate, DRPG, West Midlands Safari Park and Worcester City Council, Community and Education Partner; Worcester BID and Media Partners; the Worcester News and BBC Hereford & Worcester.
