About this event

Dates, address & more

At the end of the eight-week great Waddle of Worcester art trail, there will be chance to see our happy huddle together in one place for the first and final time.

Worcestershire County Cricket Club will host Farewell Events, where all 80 penguins – large and small – will waddle together in this landmark location. Standing within the picturesque setting of the cricket ground, with the backdrop of the cathedral, this is the ultimate selfie opportunity!

Ticketed events – offering one-hour pre-booked timeslots – will also enable you to view our digital penguin installation and pick up official merchandise and raffle tickets.


Friday 4th – Sunday 6th October 2024
Friday 11th – Sunday 13th October 2024
One-hour slots 10am-6pm daily


Tickets cost £6 per adult and £3 per child (2-17 years), under 2’s go free. Alternatively, you can purchase a Family Ticket (2 adults and up to 3 children) for £15

Following the Farewell Event, the large Penguins, plus one special penguin chick, will be auctioned to raise funds for St Richard’s Hospice, whilst the remaining chicks return to the schools and community groups who decorated them, as a lasting legacy to the waddle.

Proceeds from the farewell event will support St Richard’s Hospice, who care for adults with an illness that cannot be cured, improving their quality of life from diagnosis, during treatment and to their last days. The hospice team also supports a patient’s loved ones.
