After the excitement of the Big Egg Hunt (2012 and 2013) and the BT ArtBox phone box hunt I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear how excited I am about Gromit Unleashed, which is coming up in a couple of months. Gromit Unleashed will see Bristol dotted with 70 Gromit statues (from Bristol’s own Wallace and Gromit), all decorated by different artists. The event takes place from 1st July to 8th September, so there should be plenty of time to find them all!

While I was out and about in town the other day, I happened to run into Gromit himself…


Wallace was also around, looking quite busy…


One of the artists, Laura Cramer, was painting her two Gromits…

Although Laura’s Gromits are still works in progress, it was easy to see that this one is going to have a local theme:

There was also another painted Gromit:


And one waiting for a lick of paint…

It’s going to be cracking good fun! 😉
