GOODMAN & Lilley, Portishead’s leading Sales, Lettings and Land Agents have proudly unveiled their ewe-nique ‘Shaun in the City’ sculpture design, as part of this summer’s charity trail.
Named, A Tale of Peter Rabbit™, their Henleaze shop will be home to Beatrix Potter™’s infamous character for the next eight weeks, with official trail maps being available from their High Street branch.
Each of the 70 sculptures can be found in key, central locations and iconic tourist destinations around Bristol and have once again been decorated by celebrities and local artists alike, to create a vibrant city landscape of colourful and witty designs, before being auctioned off to raise vital funds for The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity.
Directors, Richard Goodman and Guy Lilley, said: “On Monday July 6 we held a fantastic evening celebrating two special events for us - not only did we celebrate our Shaun in the City sculpture’s arrival but also the anniversary of our first completed year of business in Henleaze.
“The Tale of Peter Rabbit™ is grazing outside our Henleaze office but our Portishead’s office window has also been dressed with a meadow style window front. This couldn’t have worked better for our Peter Rabbit™ themed sculpture, as it means anyone passing either of our popular offices won’t miss out on the action!”
This year’s summer trail coincides with the release of Aardman’s baaaaarilliant Shaun the Sheep Movie and also celebrates the Chinese Lunar Year of the Sheep.
If anyone is unable to participate in the trail, all 120 individual sculptures, found on both the London and Bristol trails will be going on display in “The Great Sheep Round Up” exhibition between September 12-20 at The Mall, Cribbs Causeway.
