30 Years of Wallace & Gromit

Cracking Conversation: Wallace and Gromit
Wed 23 October 2019,

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since the characters Wallace and Gromit were first shown on our screens. After that appearance in A Grand Day Out in 1989, our intrepid duo have starred in The Wrong Trousers (1993), A Close Shave (1995) and A Matter of Loaf and Death (2008), as well as their first feature film — Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005). Wallace & Gromit are internationally celebrated, winning over 100 awards at festivals – including 3 Academy® Awards and 5 BAFTA® Awards.

In this special 30th anniversary event, Wallace & Gromit creator, Nick Park will be interviewed by Mark Kermode and Linda Ruth Williams. What inspired Nick Park to create these characters? What does he see as the milestones that have made them the national treasures they are today? Where do they go next? There’ll be clips from the films, behind-the-scenes footage and special guests. Join us for the anniversary party of 2019 with this unique celebration of Wallace & Gromit and the wonderful film-makers of Bristol.
