Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation are bringing 70 b-ewe-tiful giant Shaun the Sheep sculptures, created by artists, designers and celebrities, to green spaces across Bristol for the public to enjoy.
Ashton Gate has been chosen as one of the lucky venues to home its very own sport-inspired Shaun until August 31st.
The trail of Shauns, which runs into all four corners of Bristol, will see the Shaun-hunting community visit Ashton Gate as it undergoes its £45 million rebuild.
Ashton Gate’s Shaun has been designed by Bristol-based artist Timmy Willmott, who was inspired by Bristol Sport teams in his design. The Shaun includes the colours of Bristol City, Bristol Rugby, Bristol Academy Women’s, Bristol Ladies Rugby, Bristol Flyers Basketball and a race track as a nod to Bristol Sport Racing’s Dino Zamparelli, Connor Hall and Lando Norris.
There are lots of ways you can get involved with Shaun in the City. Download the official Shaun in the City: Sheep Spotter app to your Apple or Android device to find our Shauns, collect ewe-nique achievements and trophies, and connect with the wider Shaun-hunting community!
All proceeds go to The Grand Appeal and Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity, so you’ll be supporting their amazing causes, too!
Nicola Masters, Director, Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal said “Shaun in the City is a great success in London, with tens of thousands of keen Shaun-spotters taking part and we are all excited to now bring the trail to the beautiful City of Bristol for the whole summer.
We are looking forward to welcoming from all over the UK and overseas to Bristol, showcasing our fabulous Shaun in the City sculptures and all that Bristol has to offer as a vibrant city whilst raising funds for The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity.
