Wallace & Gromit Celebrate The Jubilee With The National Trust!

Wallace & Gromit have teamed up with the National Trust for a summer of celebration kicking off with special Diamond Jubilee events on Monday 4th June!

The inventive pair will be hanging the bunting in preparation for over 70 Jubilee tea parties held across the country, where they will be featured in a brand new one minute  animation; 'Wallace & Gromit’s Jubilee Bunt-a-thon'. Busy preparing for the big Jubilee weekend, the animation shows our loveable duo decorating a magnificent National Trust manor.

This new short animation will be shown at the events across the country, alongside behind the scenes footage, other Wallace & Gromit classic films and a host of fun activities! There will even be Aardman model makers teaching you how to make a Gromit out of clay.
