Statues arrive for Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail

Wullie is in the house. Well, in the warehouse!

Ahead of Scotland’s first ever national public art trail Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail this summer, we’ve taken in blank sculptures of the Scotland’s favourite son.

Some of the Oor Wullie statues waiting to be unwrapped.

Oor Wullies will take to the streets of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Aberdeen and Dundee for 11 weeks from 17th June to 23rd August, helping to raise awareness and funds for Scotland’s children’s hospital charities.

But, before he can hit the streets, we need you!

Artists and sponsors for the Oor Wullie Big Bucket Trail are being sought.

Each of the 150 Oor Wullies need an original design and we’re calling on creative types young and old to put forward their submissions before the deadline of January 31.

Not a dab hand with a paint brush? We need sponsors too – if you or a business you know could sponsor a statue, email
