Farewell Weekend - Last chance to see the wallabies!

Our beautifully designed wallaby sculptures have taken the Isle of Man by storm this summer and have won the hearts of thousands of fans, from the island and further afield.

The island-wide art trail has been arranged by Hospice Isle of Man in association with Wild in Art, which is a global leader in mass participation public art events.

If you haven't managed to visit every wallaby before this time, the farewell weekend is your one final chance to see them all together.

The event will bring together the 26 large wallabies, which were created by both local and international artists, along with the 38 small sculptures that were designed by schools and community groups. As our large wallabies go up for auction on 26th September to raise funds for Hospice Isle of Man, the Farewell Weekend also presents the perfect opportunity for potential bidders to preview the wallabies.

With two generous time slots per day, people will be able to take time to have a detailed look at the sculptures and their art work, and there’ll be a chance to meet some of the artists whose designs feature on the trail.

The Farewell Weekend is being held at the picturesque Ballannette Country Park on Ballamenagh Road in Baldrine.

Our big wallaby farewell promises to be a great event with things to do for all the family, including pop-up food outlets, games and craft stalls.

It’s also a last-minute opportunity to get your hands on our wallaby merchandise and buy tickets for our prize draw to win a small wallaby sculpture, which the winner can choose to have designed by one of our selected trail artists or decorate themselves.

If you would like any more information, please contact the Wallabies Gone Wild team on 01624 647434 or email wallabies@hospice.org.im.
