Fans of Shaun the Sheep can watch sculptures of the Aardman Animations character come to life from today.

Ahead of an art trail in Bristol next summer, a unit at the Galleries Shopping Centre in the city centre is being used as a studio.

Local artists will be transforming the blank sheep canvasses into works of art.

Time for Shaun to have his 'day in the sun'

After the success of last year's Gromit Unleashed campaign Shaun the Sheep will take the stand and fundraise for Bristol Children's Hospital.

120 sculptures will be placed across Bristol and London this Autumn.

The creator of the UK's favourite children's character, Nick Park, has been closely involved with designing them and setting up the 'Trail of two cities'.
