Attention UK: get your weirdest, wackiest and most wonderful trousers at the ready: Wallace & Gromit’s Wrong Trousers Day is back!
Inspired by Wallace & Gromit’s Oscar®-winning film, The Wrong Trousers, on Friday 24 June schools, offices, groups and individuals from all over the UK’s South West will be donning their own “wrong trousers” to raise money for The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity.
It couldn’t be simpler to take part, just pay £1 to ditch the dress code and step out in something sillier. Everyone and anyone can join in and you can dress up in whatever you want, from sports kit and sparkly sequins to funky flares and fake fur – even a tutu! On Wrong Trousers Day, it’s right to look wrong!
Nick Park, the creator of Wallace & Gromit, and Aardman co-founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton were among supporters across the region who posed in their own wrong trousers to launch this year’s event. The trio were photographed on set at Aardman studios.
Nick Park, director of The Wrong Trousers, said, “Wrong Trousers Day is always such cracking fun. It’s a really simple way to help The Grand Appeal support sick children and their families, and the best part is absolutely anyone can get involved! I hope that people across the South West are inspired to follow Wallace’s lead and wear their wrong trousers on Friday 24 June.”
