Shaun in the City - the hotly anticipated charity initiative from the team that created the award-winning Gromit Unleashed campaign in 2013 - will feature giant Shaun the Sheep sculptures decorated by celebrities and artists, herded on the streets of London and Bristol in a ‘trail of two cities’.

Each city trail will feature its own flock of giant Shaun the Sheep sculptures, decorated by celebrities and artists to create a vibrant city landscape of colourful and witty designs.

Lesley Evans, Chief Executive of Haseltine Lake, says, “We are delighted to be sponsoring a Shaun and supporting this baa-rilliant cause, especially in view of Haseltine Lake’s long-standing relation-sheep as trademark advisors to Aardman, the creators of Shaun the Sheep. We had great fun as sponsors for the Bristol-based Gromit Unleashed campaign in 2013 and our London team is very much looking forward to being part of the action this time around, with colourful Shauns popping up in iconic London locations! We can’t wait to find out who our designer will be!”

Shaun the Sheep creator Nick Park is closely involved with the project and will be designing one of the sculptures on the trail. He says, “The Shaun in the City trail means so much to me. This opportunity to bring an arts trail to life with Gromit’s pal Shaun the Sheep is baa-rilliant! Shaun is such a well-loved character with fans all over the world. He will add colour to our streets and I am sure many will flock to the City to be part of the fun. I am particularly looking forward to working with so many talented artists and seeing how they will use Shaun as their canvas!”

In autumn 2015, following both trails, the flocks will go on display to the general public, prior to a grand auction to raise money for sick children in hospitals across the UK. For more information, visit http://www.shauninthecity.org.uk/
