Acclaimed musician Jools Holland is bringing the sound of the big band to Bristol with his musical Gromit 'Bumble Boogie' and legendary animators Pixar have created a film design. The Royal Mint, actress Joanna Lumley, hat maker to The Royals Philip Treacy, Irish garden designer and television personality Diarmuid Gavin and renowned graffiti artist Inkie complete the list!

Jools' sculpture will bring the boogie-woogie beats of Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra to the trail, as his Gromit features a specially recorded soundtrack based on The Flight of the Bumble Bee! And the Royal Mint's 'National Treasure' will be covered from head to toe in nearly 10,000 brand new one penny coins with a specially-commissioned Gromit medallion, designed by Nick Park, taking pride of place on the haunch of the sculpture.
