“In preparing for this unique trail we have been overwhelmed by the enthusiastic support of businesses, the astounding talent of the artists and the wonderful creativity of our city’s schoolchildren. Now it’s time to unveil the trail to Nottingham and the world! The Hoodwinked trail is a great activity for schools, a brilliant treasure hunt for all the family during the summer holidays, an attraction for tourists and a fresh way for students to find their way around their new city. We hope that many thousands of people will take this opportunity to get out and about while enjoying the company of our 33 Hoodwinked Robins and admiring 55 beautiful BookBenches.”

Councillor Dave Trimble, Nottingham City Council Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Localities

“The Hoodwinked project has reached a key milestone in going ‘live’. Our partnership working with Wild in Art, sponsors and Nottingham City Council has been fantastic and together we are bringing 33 amazing modern masterpieces to the streets of Nottingham. Our patients and their families have enjoyed designing artwork and painting the ABSN sculpture, and the proceeds from the auction will make a real difference to our ability to continue to care for them. I hope our communities have fun, feel joyful and smile as they explore the amazing Hoodwinked trail – there really is a twist and reward in every stop on the trail!”

“Hoodwinked celebrates the city’s people and places, and together with the Council and Nottinghamshire Hospice, we’re proud to have helped bring businesses, artists, schools and communities together to make it happen. A showcase for the power of creativity, the colourful art trail promises fun-filled days for residents and visitors alike. We can’t wait for everyone to start discovering the spectacular Robins and BookBenches and sharing the magical stories the artwork inspires.”

Ben Reed, Head of Creative Development at Wild in Art
