Special Event

The Mystery of the Missing Hedgehogs

The Brickworks, Southampton
12 - 13 April 2023
11am - 4pm

Can you help us to help hedgehogs in this family-friendly holiday event

A wildlife survey of the Brickworks recently found that the site is used by deer, badgers and owls…but we haven’t found any hedgehogs! Follow our trail through the Museum to find out all about our spiky friends and learn what makes a really excellent hedgehog habitat in this family-friendly adventure.

Can you build a hedgehog house and design the perfect garden? Can you find the hiding hedgehogs and work out whose footprints are whose? Can you create a great meal for a prickly hog and take on our true or false challenge?

Complete the trail then make your own hedgehog craft to take away in this really super Easter holiday event.

This event is run by The Brickworks Museum in conjunction with Animex International and is part of The Wild Escape.

Admission fees apply; suggested donation for craft £1; no need to pre-book, just turn up.

Be part of The Wild Escape, a nationwide celebration of UK nature inspired by the wildlife found in museum and galleries. The Wild Escape is made possible with support from Arts Council England’s National Lottery Project Grants, with additional support from Bloomberg Philanthropies, Kusuma Trust, Foyle Foundation and a group of generous individuals and trusts.
