Shaun the Sheep as a Queen's Guard The Guardian designed by Vivi Cuevas

Go in search of Shaun the Sheep as 50 giant sculptures of the popular character pop up all over London in the South East, from Chinatown to St Paul's Cathedral, until May 25.  

Then it’s on to Bristol in the South West – the home of Aardman Studios – where 20 more individually-designed sculptures will join this ewe-nique trail from July 6 to August 31.

The sculptures, designed by a variety of artists, designers and celebrities including David Gandy, Zandra Rhodes and Cath Kidston, will then be auctioned off to raise money for children’s hospitals across the UK.

“I have always been a huge fan of Aardman and Nick Park animations and wanted to take part in the Shaun in the City project because not only is it a great way to raise money and awareness for Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation, but what better way to showcase the best of British style and the importance of tailoring heritage? My Shaun wears a suit that is an exact replica of one I own, by Savile Row tailors, Henry Poole, in a woollen tweed from Yorkshire.” said David Gandy.

Why not create your own city itinerary in London or Bristol and tick off as many Shauns as possible by downloading The Shaun in the City app?
