Buckingham Otter Trail

Otter-Tastic Summer

The Buckingham Otter Trail will be a free, fun, family-friendly sculpture event with ten individually painted 3ft tall otters, located throughout the town centre during summer 2021.

Why are we doing it?

The town council is organising this event to help drive footfall and economic spend to the town. It will bring the community together and people will enjoy visually accessible public art. It's also an opportunity to create something new and exciting for the Buckingham Fringe Week, even with social distancing restrictions in place. Above all, public art adds enormous value to the cultural wellbeing of a community and it's enjoyed by people of all ages. The trail will be launched during Fringe Week and will continue through the summer.

Become a sponsor

Local businesses, organisations and community groups, are invited to sponsor an otter sculpture for a reasonable price of £175. There are so many reasons to be involved. From great PR opportunities to being part of an amazing town-wide event! Your name  and logo will be used on all promotional material and most importantly your name will be on a plaque. There is limited availability so do not delay and get in touch today.
