We're hitting the road Gromit. Don't forget the cheese!

Live events - Wallace & Gromit roadshow

The 2010 Roadshow has now come to an end, but continue the buzz and excitement in 2011 with our Science and Discovery centres below.

Live Events

The Wallace & Gromit roadshow visited six UK shopping centres throughout November and December 2010, inspiring the audience to actively engage and experiment with technology and science by creating their own inventions.

Tens of thousands of people got hands on at the roadshow and thousands more enjoyed a life size replica of Wallace's inventing studio at their local shopping centres. With the help of experienced facilitators, adults and children got hands-on and found out how to build their own version of Wallace's 'Run-About Steam Chair'.

Science and Discovery Centres 2011

After the huge success of the Wallace & Gromit roadshow, the BBC and Aardman Animations Ltd have decided to continue the buzz and excitement by inviting Science and Discovery Centres from across the UK to run Wallace & Gromit invention sessions on our behalf.

Inspired by Wallace's love of inventing, visitors to the Science and Discovery Centres will get the chance to experience a fun Wallace & Gromit invention session, where you will be shown how to make one of Wallace's bespoke inventions from the World of Invention series.

Each Science and Discovery Centre will be running sessions at different times in 2011, so please click on the links below to find out what's happening near you.

Places will be limited and available on a first come first served basis. The minimum age for invention sessions is seven years and above due to small parts in the kit.
