Shaun the Sheep on the Tyne

From the official website Shaun the Sheep on the Tyne.

Join in with an exciting, free public art trail that will add colour to the streets, parks and public spaces of Newcastle this summer!

Shaun the Sheep on the Tyne is presented by and raising funds for St Oswald’s Hospice. The charity has partnered with creative producers Wild in Art, Shaun the Sheep creator Aardman and Headline Partners Newcastle City Council to bring you a ewe-nique art adventure that the whole family can enjoy.

Following the success of Great North Snowdogs in 2016 and Elmer’s Great North Parade in 2019, St Oswald’s Hospice’s third art trail celebrates the support shown by their community throughout the pandemic. From now until Wednesday 27th September 2023, Newcastle city centre and surrounding areas will be transformed by the arrival of 45 super-sized sculptures, inspired by the much-loved star of film and television, Shaun the Sheep. Located alongside some of the city’s most iconic landmarks, each Shaun the Sheep sculpture has been uniquely designed by artists from the region and beyond, providing a fun, family-friendly art trail for locals and visitors to follow.

A series of smaller ‘Little Shaun’ sculptures, adopted and painted by schools and youth groups, are also displayed as part of the adventure, at indoor venues across the city.

A trail map and App are available to navigate avid art adventurers across the accessible trail, helping you discover each sculpture and unlock a series of rewards and milestones.

Whilst exciting and inspiring people of all ages to celebrate our beautiful city through creativity, the trail hopes to increase public awareness about hospice care and its importance and impact on our whole community. When the trail ends, the super-sized Shaun sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for St Oswald’s Hospice.

Shaun the Sheep on the Tyne is the perfect summer holiday activity, free for all and packed full of baa-rilliant adventure. Join the flock now, ewe won’t regret it!
