A new collection of official Minerva’s Owls of Bath merchandise goes on sale today, offering fans of Bath’s popular sculpture trail the chance to secure a permanent memento of the event.
The official merchandise is available to purchase from today via a new online shop at www.minervasowls.org and from the Visitor Information Centre on Terrace Walk, Flamingo gift shop in Widcombe, Bath Aqua Glass in Abbey Churchyard and the Roman Baths.
Owls of Bath mugs are £9.50 and 20cm tall solid plaster mini-owls, hand-made in Bath for painting at home, are £49.00. Owl posters will be available from Saturday. Tea-tOWLs, children’s colouring books, calendars and the official Owls of Bath book will follow next month.
The launch of owl merchandise comes after a fantastically successful opening month for the public art sculpture trail, which has seen over 4,000 Owls of Bath trail maps sold and over 3,000 app downloads. People from as far afield as China, Canada and the US have downloaded the app, which asks owl fans to answer a question about each owl as they explore the trail. More than 18,000 owl questions have been answered so far, with a fabulous Big Hoot prize on offer for the person who answers most questions correctly.
