My sister is a huge fan on Shaun the Sheep, a British stop-motion animated TV series and spin-off of the Wallace and Gromit franchise. So when I heard there was a Shaun the Sheep sculpture trail coming to London I had to go and check it out on her behalf (if I’m honest, I love this sort of thing anyway).
120 giant Shaun the Sheep sculptures, created by artists, designers and celebrities, will be placed in locations across London and Bristol before going to auction later in the year to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity and The Grand Appeal, supporting children in hospitals across the UK. The first 50 sculptures arrived in London on 28th March and will remain in place until 25th May. The remaining 70 sculptures will pop up in Bristol over the summer.
They’ve created a fantastic little app to help you find all the Shaun sculptures. It costs £1.49 but all the proceeds will go to charity. Alternatively you can print out the PDF or pick up a brochure (I got one in the information office near St Paul’s Cathedral).
I’ve managed to track down most of the London sculptures already and I’ve included photos of some of my favourite ones below.
