Scroll to content

Join us as we celebrate our winter masterpiece exhibition Wallace & Gromit and Friends: The Magic of Aardman with a Family Sunday dedicated to the wacky animation world of Aardman Studios.

Meet one of the founders of Aardman Studios, David Sproxton and learn the secrets to the art and craft of claymation between 1pm and 2pm.

Create your own stop motion masterpiece at the drop-in animation workshop and see if you can match the masters, and experiment with the tradition of the Zoetrope, one of the earliest forms of animation.

Dress up as your favourite character and strut your stuff for a chance to win prizes in our costume competition.

Enter the world of Aardman and get into character through the magic of green screen and have your photo taken with Wallace and Gromit between 12pm and 3pm.

Watch a huge selection of classic Aardman animations on the Lightwell stage and test your skills with a range of Aardman videogames.
