Aardman Animations and the National Trust have launched a campaign fronted by Wallace and Gromit as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

A weekend of over 70 Jubilee events will be held across the country at National Trust places - which, as well as hosting the debut of a bespoke mini Wallace and Gromit animation, will also feature Wallace and Gromit model making workshops, themed trails, a variety of games, exclusive themed retail and catering treats.

The characters have also become the face for the National Trust's Summer of Celebration campaign, including an exclusive retail range of Wallace and Gromit commemorative gifts available to purchase from selected Trust shops and online from June 4th.

A one-minute animation and behind the scenes film have been specially created for the National Trust festivities. Wallace and Gromit's Jubilee Bunt-a-thon will be shown on June 4th at 14 National Trust properties.

"At Aardman, we are thrilled that Wallace and Gromit have had a chance to explore all the Trust has to offer - from helping to put up bunting to enjoying their Wensleydale cheese platter at a picnic," said Nick Park, creator of Wallace and Gromit.
