The announcement of a new Wallace and Gromit film means that I’m now officially looking forward to this summer’s Diamond Jubilee.
Nick Park has been working with the National Trust to create A Jubilee Bunt-a-thon, a minute-long short film about the heroic duo’s involvement in the royal celebrations. A minute is not enough!
The film, and a behind-the-scenes documentary, will be premiered at 14 National Trust locations, all of which are holding special Jubilee parties on Monday, 4 June.
The sites are: Wallington in Northumberland: Beningbrough Hall in York: Belton in Grantham: Attingham in Shrewsbury: Powys Castle in Wales: Penrhyn Castle in Bangor: Basildon Park in Reading: Morden Hall Park in London: Tyntesfield in Bristol: Felbrigg Hall in Norwich: Anglesey Abbey in Cambridge: Springhill in Magherafelt, Northern Ireland: and Castle Ward in Downpatrick, Northern Ireland. It will also be shown at Quarry Bank Mill, Cheshire, on July 15.
More stills from the film have been released today and are on www.imdb.com.
