In July 2014, in partnership with the RSPB, Europe’s largest nature conservation charity, intu launched the Big Birdhouse Tour. This brought art and nature to life in the form of 14 larger than life birdhouses designed by well-known British personalities, including TV presenter Steve Backshall, radio DJ Jo Whiley and One Show presenter Alex Jones.
The tour has been active for the past 16 months, and has seen the imaginatively decorated birdhouses stop off at all 15 intu centres across the UK to help raise awareness and money for the RSPB’s vital conservation work. The Birdhouses visited Norwich back in May this year, and four local schools got involved by designing giant birdwings to hang in a special gallery. During the stay, RSPB were at intu Chapelfield spreading the word about their work and giving tips on how to give nature a home in your own back garden, school or workplace.
With the tour now at its end these beautiful big birdhouses are available for purchase with proceeds going to the RSPB.
From Thursday 27 October to Sunday 6 November the 14 big birdhouses will be up for auction via eBay.
