The Barbican has teamed up with the creators of Wallace and Gromit to offer a model making workshop where you make your very own Gromit.

You'll be able to ask the animation experts a few questions, learn a few the tricks of the trade, and then have a go at animating your model yourself courtesy of Aardman's easy to use Animate It! software.

All of the necessary materials will be provided and you'll be able to take your masterpiece home with you at the end, along with a nice Aardman Model Makers certificate.

Note: This event is meant to be attended either before or after watching the Barbican's Wallace & Gromit's Musical Marvels concert, which features a screening of The Wrong Trousers with a live orchestra.

Craig’s review of London Zoo If you want to do London Zoo properly then you'll be walking around for 4-5 hours so you need to take it slow, because it's a proper zoo: there are no rides, no rollercoasters, no dolphins doing tricks with the kids. You just stand in front of the cages trying to find the an… continued
Craig’s review of Golden Hinde It's almost a shame that I have to tell you about this place because it's much better left as a surprise.
