Wallace & Gromit’s Moon Rocket

Wallace & Gromit's Rocket Air Balloon

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Wallace & Gromit’s Moon Rocket Hot Air Balloon!  

If you like Aardman’s iconic film ‘A Grand Day Out’, watch Wallace’s first invention come to life. Look to the skies for Wallace & Gromit’s Moon Rocket Hot Air Balloon.  

About the balloon…

Wallace & Gromit’s Moon Rocket Balloon was designed in collaboration with Aardman and is operated by Exclusive Ballooning. And all for a cracking cause! The money raised from flight donations will support patients, families, and staff at Bristol Children’s Hospital and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St Michael’s Hospital.

Where can you see it?

Following its initial launch in 2020, Wallace and Gromit’s Moon Rocket Balloon has attended some fabulous fundraising events across the South West. 

Including our ‘Make a Move’ event; a fun-filled sports day for past and present patients of the Paediatric Oncology and Haematology Department at Bristol Children’s Hospital.  

The eagle-eyed of you might have also seen the balloon sailing through the Bristol skies carrying The Yogcast crew. This launch kicked off the world’s biggest charity event: Jingle Jam 2023.  

There will be plenty of opportunities to #SpotTheRocket in 2024. Make sure to keep an eye on our website and social media so you don’t miss the magic!
