This exhibition is perfect for fans of the Oscar winning studio's productions, and for anyone looking to get an inside look at all the stages of making an animation show.

Hand-crafted plasticine models, concept drawings, character studies, storyboards and production design will be just some of the things on display at the Wallace & Gromit and friends exhibition, as well as the first drawings of Wallace & Gromit and the rocket from A Grand Day Out - two items that have never been seen before.

Attendees will actually be able to walk alongside some of Wallace's most well known contraptions with over 50 authentic film sets being on display, such as Wallace's vegetable garden, the flying machine from Chicken Run, and plenty more.

So if you're interested in learning the ins and outs of animation production, or just want to know more about the movies that you held so dear when you were younger, the Wallace & Gromit and friends exhibition at ACMI is sure to leave you filled with a copious amount of new knowledge.
