The 2018 Gromit Unleashed trail in Bristol

The 2018 Gromit Unleashed trail in Bristol

Posted on: 16 May 2018

The Gromit trail returns to Bristol this summer and Bristol's favourite dog will be joined by pal Wallace and arch nemesis Feathers McGraw as part of Gromit Unleashed 2. The giant sculptures will be taking pride of place in 60 locations across the city from 2nd July until 2nd September 2018.

Gromit Unleashed 2018

Organised by Bristol Children’s Hospital charity The Grand Appeal, Gromit Unleashed 2 will see Nick Park's Academy Award winning character Gromit return to Bristol in 2018 for his second starring role in the award-winning charity's sculpture trails, but this time he's not alone; the love able pooch will be joined by his pal Wallace and arch nemesis Feathers McGraw!

 

St Mark’s Road in Easton, the Royal Fort Gardens at the University of Bristol, Hartcliffe Community Farm and Blaise Castle  are four of many locations taking part in The Grand Appeal’s trail for the very first time, with Clifton Suspension Bridge, Temple Meads and The Mall at Cribbs Causeway returning for their third season.

 

With the locations spread across the city, visitors to the trail will be able to find, learn about and even interact with sculptures by discovering ‘trails within trails’ across the North, East, South and West of Bristol. A printed map, available at the Gromit Unleashed shop at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway as well as selected locations across the city will be available at the start of July.

 

There will also be a Gromit Unleashed 2 app available to download and help avid trail fans to hunt down sculptures, while a special passport trail will be created to celebrate the trail’s innovation themes. New Gromit Unleashed 2-inspired products, including the popular figurines, will be available for purchase with all proceeds benefiting patients and families cared for by Bristol Children’s Hospital and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St Michael’s Hospital.
