Gnashional Gromit in Marriot Hotel in Bristol City Centre

Gromit Unleashed was a public art exhibition led by Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal and Aardman Animations, in which 80 giant artist-decorated fibreglass sculptures of Gromit were put on display on the streets of Bristol and the surrounding area. At the end of the art trail, the sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children's Hospital Charity.

The exhibition ran between July 10th and September 8th 2013.

Several artists were asked to participate in the event, and many people associated with the city of Bristol were given one of the eighty sculptors to paint. It included such celebrities as Joanna Lumley, Sir Quentin Blake, Jools Holland and Wallace and Gromit creator Nick Park.

The 'Trail' of 80 sculptures led to the slang term 'Gromitting' which described taking some time to explore the trail and locate the sculptures.


The majority of sculptures were located within the city of Bristol itself, leading people to local attractions or areas of interest, including one outside of Aardman animation studios, the birthplace of Wallace and Gromit.

Several sculptures were located further afield, but in places associated with the city of Bristol, including Bristol Airport, Cheddar Gorge, Westonbirt Arboretum, and even as far as London Paddington Station.
