from the Gromit Unleashed facebook page
our Greatest Dog Show on Earth exhibition is moving from the Royal West of England Academy (RWA) in Clifton, Bristol to Beacon House (the former Habitat store), which is just next door on Queens Road.
We’re moving our exhibition to Beacon House because of its larger capacity to house our Gromits, and manage the high volume of people we are expecting to visit our exhibition, ensuring we can put on the best display possible for our visitors! Each sculpture will be displayed in dog show categories, including Rare Breeds, Working Dogs, Toy Dogs, Bristol Dogs, Space Dogs and Best in Show.
The exhibition will be run in association with the RWA and will still take place from 18th to 22nd September with new, extended opening hours. The exhibition will be open daily from 9am to 6pm Wednesday to Friday, open late until 7pm on Saturday and from 11am to 5pm on Sunday (with last admission 30 minutes before closing). Entry for adults will be £4 each, with a concession for 12 to 18 year olds at £2 each. Children aged up to 11 can enter for free!
Entry will be on a first come, first serve basis, so make sure you get down there and get your place in the queue.
Yesterday, 8th September saw the Gromit Unleashed public art exhibition come to an end :(.
Throughout the summer months adults and children alike have been following the trial all over Bristol and beyond searching for the giant sculptures which raise money for Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children's Hospital Charity.
I think this from Miriam Akhtar on twitter yesterday sums it up perfectly!
See all 80 Giant Gromits in One Place!
Gromit Unleashed are offering people the opportunity to see all 80 giant Gromit sculptures exhibited together in one place! All 80 Gromits will form a public exhibition titled 'The Greatest Dog Show on Earth' at the Royal West of England Academy (RWA) in Clifton, Bristol.
This will be the only chance for the public to see the unique collection of Gromits displayed together before being auctioned in October to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal.
Visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to place a sealed bid before the auction, and bidders can also pre-register to bid at the auction by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. All proceeds from the Gromit Unleashed auction will go towards the Grand Appeal’s £3.5m fundraising campaign to support the expansion of Bristol Children's Hospital.
Time: Open daily at 9.30am to 5.30pm from Wednesday to Friday, open late until 6.30pm on Saturday and from 11am to 5pm on the Sunday (last admission 30 minutes before closing).
Price: Adults £4 each, with a concession for 12 to 18 year olds at £2 each. Children aged up to 11 can enter for free!
We can't wait and the kids will LOVE it!
