Release the hounds...
Gromit Unleashed all began with a major public arts trail in the summer of 2013, which saw 80 giant sculptures of award-winning Aardman Animations character Gromit decorate Bristol’s streets. Each sculpture was individually decorated by famous names from the worlds of animation, art, fashion,
film and music – from Cath Kidston to Sir Peter Blake; Joanna Lumley to Gerald Scarfe.
After making Bristol their home for ten weeks, the Gromits went to auction in October 2013, raising over £2.3 million for Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity. Since then, Gromit Unleashed has continued to raise funds, going global with a project in Hong Kong and
selling our exclusive Gromit Unleashed brand of merchandise, helping to raise £4.5 million to date.
