Meet Halton’s newest resident, a huge red squirrel that will light up the night this December

25/11/2021

Victoria Park in Widnes has a new resident, The Squirrel will bring a stunning visual light display to residents and visitors this December.

The new artwork is all part of Halton’s Borough of Culture year and is set to come alive as the sun sets – bringing a mesmeric visual display, part of the Celebrate Halton festival.

Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for Culture, Cllr Paul Nolan, said:

“It’s about raising awareness about the impact of human civilisation on the animal kingdom.

“It will also transform the park after dark with stunning visual projections. Visit  for free and, as the earth turns away from the sun, watch the squirrel come to life.”

The red squirrel was one of four endangered species commissioned and exhibited at selected sites nationwide, apart of Unnatural Borders by Sober Industries, a project that explored the interaction between human civilisation and the animal kingdom.

Without conservation management, red squirrels could become extinct in England in approximately 10 years. Time is really running out to save our red squirrels.

It will be at Victoria Park, Glass Houses and Butterfly House, Widnes WA8 6EN, 4:30pm – 8:30pm each day between Thursday 9 December and Sunday 12 December.
