***NEW VENUE! The Greatest Dog Show on Earth exhibition is moving from the Royal West of England Academy (RWA) in Clifton, Bristol to Beacon House (the former Habitat store), which is just next door on Queens Road. ***
It was announced today that the Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal charity will be offering people an opportunity to see all 80 giant Gromit sculptures, exhibited together in one place, after the Gromit Unleashed trail finishes!
From 18th to 22nd September all 80 Gromits will form a public exhibition titled 'The Greatest Dog Show on Earth' at Beacon House in Clifton, Bristol.
This will be the only chance for the public to see the unique collection of Gromits displayed together before they are auctioned in October to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal.
The exhibition opening times are as follows (last admissions are 30 minutes before closing)
Wednesday – Friday: 9:30am to 6:00pm
Saturday: 9:30am to 7:00pm
Sunday: 11am to 5pm
Entry for adults will be £4 each, with a concession for 12 to 18 year olds at £2 each. Children aged up to 11 can enter for free!
Visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to place a sealed bid prior to the auction, and bidders can also pre-register to bid at the auction at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will also be the chance to buy a range of Gromit Unleashed merchandise, including the popular small Gromit figurines, featuring selected artists designs!
All proceeds from the Gromit Unleashed auction will go towards the Grand Appeal’s £3.5m fundraising campaign to support the expansion of Bristol Children's Hospital.
Further details about the auction will be revealed before the end of the trail!
