The Gromit Unleashed Auction

Nick Park with Newshound at the Gromit Unleashed Auction

After 10 weeks on a public art trail in Bristol, our Gromit Unleashed sculptures designed by famous artists, designers and celebrities, and prominent local artists, went to auction on Thursday 3rd October 2013.

Hosted by Sotheby's auctioneer and TV antiques presenter Tim Wonnacott, the auction began with a bang when our very first Gromit, Patch, sold for an incredible £36,000! Other highlights included Wallace & Gromit creator Nick Park's sculpture selling for a fantastic £50,000, and Gromit Lightyear by Disney Pixar going under the hammer for an astonishing £65,000!

Our auction was an absolutely fantastic evening and we are delighted to have raised over £2.3 million for Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal to support sick children and their families at Bristol Children's Hospital.
