“It’s the wrong trousers! The wrong trousers!”

You did it, lad!

You found a pair of silly slacks but what does it mean? Well, let us tell you…

You’re invited to Wallace & Gromit’s Wrong Trousers Day

How to join in? It’s simple – find your weirdest, wackiest trousers and wear them on Friday 1 July.

Whether you’re at home, school or at work, donate for the right to look wrong and support sick children at Bristol Children’s Hospital.

‘Twas some nights before Wrong Trousers Day, when all through the city,

perched trousers in windows, looking ever so pretty.

With ludicrous legwear and the funkiest of flares,

raising money for sick children, will you be there?


To celebrate 25 years of this FUN-raising event, we’ve hidden multiple pairs of trousers around the city centre.

How many are there? Well, we can’t tell you that. It’s up to you to see how many you can find. Take a photo, tag us, share it to your socials and help make this Wrong Trousers Day the best yet.

You can find us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter as @TheGrandAppeal and don’t forget to use #WrongTrousersDay.
