We are very excited to be working with our event partners to bring Oor Wullie artworks to the streets and public spaces of five cities in Scotland in the summer of 2019.
Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail will see artists, young people and communities come together with businesses to showcase Scotland’s creativity, its heritage and spirit of fun.

Since appearing in the Sunday Post over 80 years ago, Oor Wullie has become a much loved part of Scottish Heritage.
He’s the iconic wee Scottish laddie from the fictional town of Auchenshoogle, and some say the image of Wullie sitting on his upturned bucket, wearing his famous black dungarees is as familiar to Scots as Edinburgh Castle!
Oor Wullie is so loved by the Scottish nation that in a survey conducted in 2004 the young scamp was voted ‘Scotland’s Favourite Son’, beating William Wallace and Sean Connery into second and 3rd places, with Rabbie Burns a distant 4th!
