Shaun in the City Networking Event at The Royal Exchange

27 April 2015

On Wednesday 22 April Haseltine Lake hosted a party in honour of the firm’s sponsored Shaun - “Robo-Shaun” - recently revealed in all his red robotic glory outside the Royal Exchange. Over 50 of Haseltine Lake’s London-based clients and IP industry associates attended the event to meet Robo-Shaun and to see a photo-montage of his evolution from initial design drawings to completed sculpture at the hands of Bristol artist Tim Sutcliffe. 

Lesley Evans, CEO of Haseltine Lake, comments, “Robo-Shaun gave us the perfect excuse to get some of our clients and contacts together for a relaxed and celebratory evening and to raise money for the Wallace and Gromit Children’s Charity. Our guests loved Robo-Shaun’s retro-futuristic look, offset by the magnificent backdrop of the Royal Exchange Building.”

Members of the public visiting Haseltine Lake’s Robo-Shaun are encouraged to share a selfie with the firm on Twitter by tweeting the image alongside the hashtag #RoboShaun to the @HaseltineLake twitter account.

At the end of March, 50 five-foot tall sculptures of Aardman’s Shaun the Sheep flocked to the streets of London for the free charity arts trail, Shaun in the City. High profile artists, designers and celebrities have been working hard designing and decorating the sculptures, which can now be viewed at iconic locations and green spaces all over the capital, including Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, the View from the Shard and St Paul’s Cathedral. The trail will run across London until 25 May, closely followed by a second trail across Bristol, featuring 70 different Shaun sculptures, from 6 July until 31 August.

Following both trails, all 120 Shauns will be auctioned for charity in October. The money raised from sales of the London Shaun in the City sculptures will go towards Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity, which supports sick children in hospitals throughout the UK.

The Shaun in the City trail follows the success of the charity’s Gromit Unleashed trail across Bristol in 2013, featuring the classic Aardman character, which raised over £2.3million for Bristol Children’s Hospital.
