Public Art Trails

There have been a number of public art trials taking place over recent years.

Bears

The NSPCC, visitlondon.com and STUDIOCANAL collaborated with Barclaycard to organise the Paddington Trail over the festive season in London in 2014. The trail was formed of 50 individually-designed Paddington Bear and ran from 4th November until 30th December 2014. The Paddington Bears were sold at auction and raised around £950,000 for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, Childline and Action Medical Research.
