Wallace & Gromit and Friends: The Magic of Aardman

From Wallace & Gromit to Shaun the Sheep and Chicken Run and many more, Aardman’s claymation creations have been enchanting audiences for over four decades.

ACMI’s latest exhibition, takes an extraordinary trip from sketches and models through to elaborate sets as these beloved characters take shape on screen. Highlighting over 350 objects from Aardman’s most amazing animations, celebrate the Oscar-winning studio’s unique artistic vision.

Wander among Wallace’s cracking contraptions along with over 50 authentic film sets, including Gromit’s famous vegetable garden, city streets from Shaun the Sheep the Movie, the flying machine from Chicken Run and the spectacular five-metre tall ship from The Pirates! Band of Misfits.

Hand crafted plasticine models, concept drawings, character studies, storyboards and production design are all revealed, including never-before-seen treasures like the first ever drawings of Wallace & Gromit and the rocket from A Grand Day Out.

It will be a grand outing for the family, animation aficionados and art lovers alike, with activities and displays illuminating the incredible intricacy, humour and artistry of the studio. View extracts of Aardman’s most famous films selected from more than 60 shorts and features, imaginative advertisements and music videos.
