The bear is out of the bag - Click Travel & the Big Sleuth - Click Travel

Stop whatever you’re doing, we’ve got an exciting announcement and it involves a Birmingham and a big, beautiful bunch of bears…


Click Travel are delighted to announce that we are an official sponsor of the Big Sleuth, a free public art event taking place in Birmingham this summer which will see up to 100 giant bear sculptures leave their paw prints all over the city for 10 weeks.

The Big Sleuth, so named because sleuth is the collective noun for a group of bears, will see the individually designed, 165cm tall, sculptures appearing throughout the city, inspiring residents and tourists to uncover Bear-mingham’s cultural gems and discover areas of the city they may not have explored before.

At the end of the trail, the bears will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, a cause that remains very close to Click’s heart.

So, that’s exciting announcement #1, now for #2…

A few weeks back the Click team were given the opportunity to select the artwork that would be painted onto our bear. After lots of umming and aahing, and even more pacing back and forth to look at over 200 beautiful designs, we came to our final decision and selected our artist.

Or artists.

Click’s bear will be painted by the amazing Charlotte and Daniel from Art + Believe: you can take a look at some of their breath-taking work right here.

Now, we’re not going to reveal our bear in all its glory just yet – we’ll save that for when the trail kicks off on 10th July. However, we will leave you with this sneak peek…


Stay tuned for more news about Click’s involvement with the Big Sleuth and our exciting fundraising efforts!
