Ed Sheeran was there to see it, along with Eliza Doolittle and Rizzle Kicks, who feature on the soundtrack.
Bristol animation company Aardman are preparing for the European premiere of their new movie Shaun the Sheep. Leicester Square in London is being turned into the back drop of the film, which will be on general release next month.
