Owls nesting around Grin HQ

A parliament of oversized owls have stormed Birmingham over the weekend… It may sound like the script of a new Hitchcock film, but in fact these large critters are making us ‘Grin’ on a Monday.

Resident Designers Kate and Jules went on an owl hunt around Grin HQ here in the Jewellery Quarter to discover more.

So what’s all this in aid of? These fabulous statuesque art pieces are creating a stir as part of Birmingham’s biggest art project to date, whilst also raising awareness and funds for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

There are 89 Owls to spot around the city, from the City Centre to Kings Heath, Sutton Coldfield, Winson Green, Bournville and many places in between. The experience is made all the more interactive with the availability of a mobile app to follow the trail and track your progress.

We love this project, it’s created a real buzz around Brum and perfect timing too for a fun activity during the summer holidays!

Keep a look out – you don’t know just hooo you might meet!
