In Your Face: Aardman Expression Lab

Aardman Expression Lab
October Half Term, 22–30 October 2016

For October half term only, In Your Face will feature some brand new activities in our Aardman Expression Lab as we join forces with Aardman to celebrate the studio’s 40th anniversary. Some of Aardman’s best loved characters from the past four decades, including Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep, will be popping up in the galleries as we reveal how animated creations communicate through facial expression – and how their faces are made. 

Please be aware that you may need to queue for activities at busy times (usually 12:00–14:00).
