A cracking show for all the family
Join everyone’s favourite cheese-loving inventor and his trusty canine companion as Wallace and Gromit’s ‘The Wrong Trousers’ with live orchestra arrives at Chester Cathedral during May half term.
On Friday 29 May, Carrot Productions (the amazing team behind The Snowman) will treat audiences to a screening of the film in the Cathedral, with their world-class orchestra bringing the soundtrack to life in spectacular fashion. Following the screening, all are welcome to come down to meet the musicians and admire their amazing costumes!
As an added bonus, Carrot Productions have teamed up with Aardman, the creators of Wallace & Gromit, to offer model making workshops where you can try your hand at making your very own Gromit. These provide the perfect opportunity to learn from the experts, and the fun doesn’t stop there… you can take your masterpiece home and have a go at animating it using Aardman’s easy to use Animate It! software.
You’ll also get a rare chance to ask questions about Aardman Studios from one of their expert model makers, learning the tricks of the trade about the animation processes involved in their award-winning films. These workshops provide a creative, fun and hands-on activity for all ages.
All materials are provided and you’ll be able to take your masterpiece home with you, along with an Aardman Model Maker certificate. This event is suitable for ages 5+. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Both adults and children must have a ticket to attend.
