Gromit Unleashed: The Grand Adventure

Start date: 24 Oct 2020

End date: 21 Feb 2021

A new mini version of our much-loved sculpture trails


Due to the pandemic, The Grand Adventure is unfortunately paws-ed until further notice.

Beginning as a public arts trail in Bristol, Gromit Unleashed is a collaboration between Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity, and Aardman Animations, to raise funds to support sick children and babies at the Hospital.

From Saturday 24 October, The Mall at Cribbs Causeway will welcome seven new dazzling designs plus some old favourites from across the trails returning. Gromit Unleashed: The Grand Adventure will see these sculptures pup-up in various locations, spread around The Mall to enhance the shopping experience, with new measures in place to ensure visitors can enjoy the mini trail in a COVID safe way.

From Russia to Australasia and America’s ‘Wild Wild West’ the event will see Wallace, Gromit, Feathers McGraw, and Shaun the Sheep globe-trotting around the world in this special edition that will run until 21 February 2021.

Keeping you safe

We have worked hard to make sure our exhibition is safe for visitors by putting measures in place to follow the latest Government guidance regarding the coronavirus pandemic.

All of the cracking sculptures will be located out of reach to minimise the risk of virus transmission. Don’t worry, there will still be opportunities to take those all-important sculpture photos. Along with a one-way system, there will be several special selfie spots so you can capture your day while keeping a safe distance from other visitors and shoppers.

We will be publishing the sculpture designs and disguises online to ensure fans who are unable or do not want to come to The Mall get to have a grand experience.

A mini adventure map will be available with a suggested donation, while visitors are encouraged to download and print your own version at home. The recommended adventure route will follow The Mall’s one-way system to make it easy for visitors to comply with social distancing.

Throughout the pandemic, we have continued to provide our services to support staff, families, and patients who need our help more than ever. Use our special contactless donations points to show your support of sick children across the South West.
