The Suffolks are giving one of Cirencester's March Hares a home from March to September in 2017.
The Hares are decorated by artist & designers, each one gloriously individual and different, rather like our Suffolks shops, bars & restaurants. The Hares are featured on a map, which will have young & old searching throughout Glorious Gloucestershire to see them up close.
The Suffolks Traders Association were introduced to the idea of putting Trompe l’oeil art on buildings in The Suffolks by Adrian Phillips.
Please follow this link which tells you a little more about this exciting project, that we hope will soon be on display on a building near you.
