Wal­lace And Gromit’s Jubilee Bunt-a-thon

Nick Park has fin­ished a new Wal­lace & Gromit short titled Wal­lace And Gromit’s Jubilee Bunt-a-thon, just in time for Queen Elizabeth’s Dia­mond Jubilee. The one-minute short fea­tures the pair prepar­ing to mark the royal celebrations.

They have already received the royal seal of approval, with the Duchess of Corn­wall reveal­ing that the pair are her husband’s “favourite peo­ple in the world”.

Bristol-based ani­ma­tor Park at Aard­man Stu­dios teamed up with the National Trust to make the film, A Jubilee Bunt-a-thon.

The mini-movie, which fea­tured Wal­lace and Gromit scal­ing lad­ders to hoist the bunting up around a mag­nif­i­cent Trust manor, will be shown at 14 National Trust locations.

A behind-the-scenes doc­u­men­tary will also be screened at the Trust’s Jubilee parties.

Park said: “I have to pinch myself when I think how far Wal­lace and Gromit have come. From ideas in my head, to ‘film stars’ work­ing with great organ­i­sa­tions such as the National Trust, which the nation holds dear to its heart.”

Wal­lace and Gromit are in for a crack­ing sum­mer at the National Trust.”

The National Trust has a spe­cial place in my heart from a child­hood mem­ory of com­plet­ing a paint-by-numbers at Stour­head, to Mon­ta­cute House, on which we based Tot­ting­ton Hall in the Curse Of The Were-rabbit.”

National Trust vis­i­tor expe­ri­ence direc­tor Tony Berry said: “The National Trust and Wal­lace and Gromit are two of Britain’s great­est trea­sures and we felt it fit­ting that in this sum­mer of cel­e­bra­tion we should bring them together.

We are hold­ing our very own pre­miere of Wal­lace And Gromit’s Jubilee Bunt-a-thon at our prop­er­ties, it was made exclu­sively for the National Trust and we are really excited that it will encour­age the nation to join us for an extra spe­cial Dia­mond Jubilee celebration.”

National Trust sites show­ing the Wal­lace and Gromit film at the Jubilee par­ties on June 4 are: Walling­ton in Northum­ber­land; Ben­ing­brough Hall in York; Bel­ton in Grantham; Atting­ham in Shrews­bury; Powis Cas­tle in Wales; Pen­rhyn Cas­tle in Ban­gor; Basil­don Park in Read­ing; Mor­den Hall Park in Lon­don; Tyn­tes­field in Bris­tol; Fel­brigg Hall in Nor­wich; Angle­sey Abbey in Cam­bridge; Springhill in Magher­afelt, North­ern Ire­land; and Cas­tle Ward in Down­patrick, North­ern Ireland.
