Aardman character Gromit is starring in a new series of films to promote Bristol as a short break destination. This summer, 80 sculptures of the animated dog will form an art trail around the city.
The main film stars two hapless delivery men, failing to navigate their way around Bristol to deliver one of the giant Gromit sculptures to an unknown destination.
