Way back in February, we were delighted to announce that together with our friends at Aardman, we would be launching a brand new arts trail in Bristol next year. Following the international success of our previous two trails, Shaun in the City and Gromit Unleashed, we were so excited to share this news with you all and we have blown away by your responses, with so many of you guessing which iconic Aardman character might feature.
After keeping this line-up under wraps for so long, we are thrilled to be able to share this news, and we’re itching to shout about it! Bounding back in to Bristol for his second starring role in our sculpture trails is Nick Park's much loved character Gromit, but this time he's not alone... The loveable canine will be joined by his pal Wallace and arch nemesis Feathers McGraw! The criminal mastermind penguin is on the loose again and the dynamic duo is out to track him down! Gromit is raring to go, but Wallace can’t resist having a nice sit down to soak up the iconic Bristol scenery, and enjoy a cuppa at every opportunity.
From Monday 2nd July until Sunday 2nd September 2018, over 60 original sculptures will descend on Bristol and will raise money for the Special Care Baby Unit at St Michael's Hospital and Bristol Children's Hospital. Over the coming months we will be revealing more and more of what is in store for Gromit Unleashed 2. But for now, all that we can say is to expect the unexpected! We hope that you are as excited as we are, and we are confident that this trail will be bigger and better than ever. Now the secret is out, help us spread the word, share in the fun and get set for #GU2.
