Shaun in the City

Shaun in the City is a public arts trail from Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation, the team behind the award-winning Gromit Unleashed trail in 2013. Broadgate will be a 'leader of the flock' when 120 giant sheep sculptures decorated by celebrities and artists, are herded onto the streets of London and Bristol later this year.

The trail will launch in London in March, co-inciding with the Lunar Year of the Sheep and following the release of Aardman’s Shaun the Sheep The Movie, when the mischievous character is set to make his big screen debut. The 5ft sculptures of Shaun the Sheep will then head to Bristol from 6 July to 31 August before returning to London for a public exhibition and charity auction in autumn 2015. 

Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity

Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity is a national charity raising funds to support and improve the lives of children in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK. The Charity supports a network of children’s hospitals and hospices in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, granting funding for projects that provide comforts and facilities for patients including state of the art equipment, family accommodation, art, music and play therapy as well as direct costs for hospice care, respite care and sensory equipment. The Charity to date has awarded around £2 million in over 200 grants to children’s hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.

Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity will benefit from funds raised from the flock of 50 sculptures placed in London during spring 2015.
