Aardman and Bristol
Aardman is proudly based in Bristol, a city with a rich creative culture. Co-Founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton first moved to Bristol in 1976 to produce their first professional production and never left. Aardman is now so deeply rooted in the city that it has become part of the studio’s DNA. Peter and David always embraced the notion of being helpful and supportive to the city. One of Aardman’s greatest achievements in Bristol is our involvement in Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, the official Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity, which has raised in excess of £70 million since 1995. The charity has organised countless fundraising initiatives including three hugely successful charity art trails in Bristol.
