In 2015, Aardman’s internationally-renowned character Shaun the Sheep will be appearing in two ewe-nique public arts trails: ‘Shaun in the City!' From 28th March - 25th May 2015, 50 giant Shaun the Sheep sculptures, created by artists, celebrities and designers will be placed in iconic locations and beautiful green spaces across London, to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit’s Children's Charity.

The project will also see a trail appear in Bristol in July, to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit Grand Appeal, supporting Bristol Children's Hospital.
