We are thrilled to welcome Mr Shaun, designed by Mr. Men and Little Miss, to Broadgate for the baa-rilliant free Shaun in the City arts trail.
From 28 March to 25 May, 50 giant sculptures of the much loved Aardman character, Shaun the Sheep, are hitting the streets of London to raise funds for the Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity.
Sitting amongst the trees in Finsbury Avenue Square, pop along to see Mr Shaun on your way to the office, in your lunch break or as part of the Bitzer Trail. Mr Shaun features some of the most unique Mr Men and Little Miss characters, taking the original book cover artwork to create a bespoke repeat pattern, with the addition of a cameo from the star of the event. See if you can spot him with all the other characters.
Nearby you'll also spot 'The Pearly King' in Liverpool Street Station, 'Robo-Shaun' at The Royal Exchange and 'Counting Sheep' at the Barbican. Want to see them all? Download the Shaun in the City app to check in at all Shauns and collect ewe-nique achievements and trophies along the trails – there’s some lost sheep to round up too.
Don’t forget, you can also see Shaun the Sheep the movie in cinemas now - maybe they’ll be a Mr. Men and Little Miss film soon...
After the London trail, another flock of 70 Shaun in the City sculptures will appear in Bristol from 6 July to 31 August. In September, all 120 sculptures will be rounded up in Covent Garden before going to auction to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity and The Grand Appeal, supporting children in hospitals across the UK.
