Over the Summer of 2021, BloominArt CIC worked with community groups, which represent the diversity, energy, and pride in the town, to decorate 35 fibreglass monkey sculptures.
From September the monkeys were placed in businesses across Hartlepool as part of the first-ever festival Monkey Trail. A variety of businesses kindly volunteered to be monkey hosts, where they displayed one of the community-designed monkeys for the duration of the festival.
To raise money for our friends, Hartlepool Carers, as the 2021 festival draws to a close, we would invite bids from those within the Hartlepool community who wish to keep their monkeys on a permanent basis. Highest bid wins the monkey that they chose.
Through the duration of The Wintertide Festival, bidding will be open. Please select the item you wish to bid for, make your bid and the winner will be announced during the live event at St Hilda's Church, Sunday 28th November starting at 4.30pm.
Thank you for your support!
