Explore the trail this Summer

Follow the HeART to Heart trail

Our 26 big hearts and 11 young hearts will be displayed across West Sussex and East Surrey throughout the Summer of 2019, and we can’t wait for you to see them!

Follow the trail and go ‘heart to heart’ to see each beautiful and uniquely designed heart, learn more about the artist and their one-of-a-kind design and unlock exclusive rewards using our brand new app!

This free and engaging public art event is perfect for families looking for something different and fun to do over the summer months, and there’ll even be family-friendly community activities taking place to get you even more involved. Check out the community event timetable!

You can also pick up one of our fabulous trail maps from our shops, in shopping mall, libraries, cafes and museums across Surrey and Sussex.

How you can get involved

The hearts will be in place for 10 weeks this summer across the areas where we provide expert end of life care. Throughout this time, you will have the chance to follow your heart around the trail and discover each of our unique hearts. Alongside this, there will be exciting activities taking place across the summer to support the trail.

We will shortly be launching an app including an interactive trail map which will guide you from HeART to Heart. As you visit each heart, you will be able to access exclusive rewards and offers.

Our Secret HeART exhibition takes place. The Secret HeART Exhibition is an art sale with a twist! A series of one-off pieces of art, designed on a postcard and including a heart shape or image will be on display. Visitors to the exhibition will be invited to ‘follow their heart’ and purchase a design to be theirs forever, but they will only discover the artist once they have bought it.

This may be a day hospice patient at St Catherine’s Hospice, Crawley, a member of the public, a local artist or a celebrity!

Everyone is welcome to design a postcard for our Secret HeART Exhibition. For further information or to take part, please email events@stch.org.uk.

October 2019
Artists and sponsors are invited to an auction of all hearts and mini hearts. This is the only time all hearts will be displayed together. The auction will raise vital funds for St Catherine’s so no-one has to face death and loss alone.
