PEOPLE in the Yate and Chipping Sodbury  area can look forward to another Wallace & Gromit arts trail taking place across Bristol this summer.

More than 60 decorated sculptures of the popular pair - and the pesky penguin Feathers McGraw - will go on show in the city from July 2 to September 2.

Locations for the Gromit Unleashed 2 trail are still being decided. If you would like to suggest a site within an approximate 10-mile radius of the city centre, contact the organisers by January 4. 

As with the previous Gromit trail in 2013 and the Shaun the Sheep trail in 2015, schools can also get involved with the project, which is run by Bristol Children’s Hospital charity The Grand Appeal with animation studio Aardman.They can apply to decorate a smaller sculpture of Feathers McGraw.

The trail will raise money for the children’s hospital and the Special Care Baby Unit at St Michael’s Hospital.

Wallace & Gromit creator Nick Park and Aardman founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton added: “It’s been nearly a quarter of a century since we brought Wallace, Gromit and Feathers together in The Wrong Trousers, and we’re delighted that they’ll be together once again in our home city of Bristol.
