Event Description

70 Shaun the Sheep sculptures, created by artists, designers & celebrities, are grazing green spaces and iconic locations in Bristol before going to auction to raise funds for The Grand Appeal and Wallace & Gromit's Children's Charity.

The eagerly-anticipated charity sculpture trail features 70 individually-designed sculptures of Aardman’s Shaun the Sheep. The sculptures are installed in iconic locations and green spaces all across Bristol from 6 July until 31 August, including Clifton Suspension Bridge, Bristol Temple Meads Station, Ashton Gate Stadium, Snuff Mills and Horfield Common, before being auctioned to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity.

The Bristol trail follows the hugely popular Shaun in the City trail in London earlier this year. Hundreds of thousands of visitors visited the 50 Shaun the Sheep sculptures installed all over the capital, with the trail extended for an extra week due to overwhelming public demand.

The Bristol trail features 70 brand new sculpture designs, each created by a different artist, designer or celebrity – including Peter Firmin, the creator of another much-loved British animated character, Bagpuss. Peter is joined by Wayne Hemingway, the acclaimed British designer behind fashion label Red or Dead.

Proceeds from the sale of the 70 Bristol sculptures will support The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity.
