Wallace & Gromit exhibition opens in Bristol

Date Posted: 08/05/2014

School groups visiting M Shed this summer term will come face-to-face with Aardman Animations’ most famous duo.

Wallace & Gromit from the Drawing Board will run at the venue from 24th May through to the 7th September.

The exhibition will explore the world which lies behind the Wallace & Gromit characters, their Bristol-based creators, Aardman Animations and the award-winning films in which they star.

Pupils on a school trip will have the opportunity to see the famous duo up-close and view story boards used to create some of the familiar and amusing film scenes.

Exhibition highlights will include: production artefacts such as notebooks from the creators, film archive, models, animation sets and clips. Some of the drawings and objects have never been on display before.

Students will be encouraged to think about how stories are created: the characters involved; the setting; the plot – and then be inspired to make and draw their own stories to share with family and friends.
