Shaun the Sheep ewe-nique art adventure at Clumber Park this Christmas

Posted onPosted on 4th Dec

The National Trust has collaborated with BAFTA® award-winning production studio Aardman and global art producer Wild in Art to bring one of Aardman’s best-loved characters to Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire this winter.

Until 7 January, 12 uniquely-designed sculptures of Shaun the Sheep are positioned at iconic locations across Clumber for Shaun the Sheep: Find the Flock at Clumber Park, a free, family-friendly art trail for visitors to follow.

Each super-sized sculpture, standing at 160cm tall, has been individually designed by artists from across the region and beyond.

Shaun the Sheep: Find the Flock at Clumber Park continues Wild in Art’s mission to take art out of the gallery, making it free and accessible to all. The trail is a glorious celebration of everything visitors love about Clumber as the wintery season is brought to life with bursts of colour, inspired by the much-loved star of film and television, Shaun the Sheep.

Molly Van Den Brink, attractions and live experiences manager at Aardman, says: “We are really excited to have launched this new sculpture trail partnership with Wild in Art and to bring Shaun the Sheep to Clumber Park as the first trail venue this winter. It is the perfect, festive fit. Shaun will feel very at home in such a beautiful, natural setting and can’t wait to see families exploring the grounds and finding the Flock!”

Kate O’Callaghan, project manager at Wild in Art, added: “Wild in Art are delighted to be continuing our ongoing partnership with Aardman to create another activity that everyone can enjoy. Our trails encourage people to get out into the fresh air, experience wonderful art and discover amazing places within their local area such as Clumber Park. We can’t wait for visitors to discover the magic of the trail and see how the artists have brought the iconic character of Shaun the Sheep to life.”

Rob Holder, general manager at Clumber Park, added: “We are delighted to be hosting this trail, which will highlight some of the best spots we have here at Clumber, as well as introducing visitors to areas of the park they may not have visited before. We all have a soft spot for Shaun the Sheep, it’s going to be a lot of fun!”
