The Story of the Bucket Trail
Commemorative book in aid of the Archie Foundation’s Tayside Children’s Hospital appeal
2016 was the year of Dundee’s spectacular Oor Wullie’s Bucket Trail, the biggest mass participation public art event of its kind ever to have taken place across Scotland.
Exceeding everyone’s expectations, the Bucket Trail took the public by storm capturing the hearts and minds of people from all over the country…and the world! It sparked people’s imaginations and creativity and brought out the best in Dundee, shining a spotlight on the wonderful sense of kindness, compassion and community spirit that exists in city.
Relive the magic of the Trail with this limited edition commemorative book. Packed full of photographs of all the sculptures, the book brings the Trail to life once more and is the perfect keepsake for Oor Wullie fans and anyone with fond memories of the Bucket Trail and Dundee alike. Learn all about the story behind the Trail’s success, how the dream became a reality, what the sculptures sold for at the spectacular auction, where they are now, and find out more about the artists who designed the sculptures, what each sculpture represented, the touring Wullies, the education programme and the fabulous farewell party!
