Bristol museum M Shed is launching a fun programme of exhibitions, events and activities for its Summer of Childhood Festival and Aardman is getting involved!
The festival kicks off on 2nd July with a weekend of activities for all ages, including model making on Sunday 3rd with an Aardman expert – you can make either a Shaun the Sheep or Gromit during workshops running throughout the day; book your session here.
Also opening over the weekend is a touring exhibition, The Story of Children’s Television From 1946 to Today, which takes a nostalgic look at classic TV shows and characters, including none other than Morph. You can take a look at a host of iconic memorabilia, objects, clips and images and see how children’s TV has evolved over the past 7 decades. The exhibition runs until 25th September. Before you leave, don’t forget to take a selfie with the Shaun the Sheep sculpture on the 2nd floor!
There are lots of other family activities to enjoy over the summer at the museum, then on Saturday 4th September you can join in the fun at The Great Aarty Party from 11am – 3pm. The party celebrates Aardman’s 40th birthday, plus you’ll be able to make your very own Morph model and take part in some other creative activities for all ages – it’s going to be a lot of fun!
