Gromit Unleashed!

Something wonderful is happening all over Bristol!  Gromit has been unleashed and you can find him all over the city.  You have to look closely or you might miss him.  Gromit is in disguise.  


He is raising money for Bristol Children's Hospital.  Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal supports one of the best children's hospitals in Europe where kids can get live saving surgery and treatment.  


There are 80 Gromits to visit and we have until September 8th to find them all.  Click HERE for a map of the Gromit Trail.


In October there will be an auction and all the Gromits will be sold to benefit the Grand Appeal.  If you want to have a chance to bid on a Gromit visit this LINK.


If you don't have room for a five foot tall Gromit in your garden, you can visit the Gromit Unleashed Shop by clicking HERE.    Andy* and I found 18 Gromits this weekend and there are so many more to see!  


These are just a few of our favourites.  I hope we don't run out of time before we can find them all!

*A special thanks to Andy for letting me use his great Gromit pix!

  1. How wonderful! I grew up in Bristol and my sister and brother in law still live there. We are visiting in a few weeks and must see how many Gromits we can find!

  2. Ha! I am enjoying the pics of these popping up on Twitter too! Shame I'm on the other side of the country to see them in the flesh.
