  • Gromit Unleashed, a public art event featuring Gromit, the long suffering sidekick of Wallace, took place in 2013. During the summer months over 1.18 million people visited the Gromit Unleashed trail and exhibition, directly contributing more than £77 million to the Bristol economy. The giant Gromit sculptures were sold at auction raising over £2million for Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal to support children and their families at Bristol Children's Hospital.
