HALF-TERM EVENTS WITH CHARACTER

September 30, 2021

We’ve been busy taking characters along to lots of openings, launches and premieres this month.

Orinoco attended the opening of the AFC Wimbledon Museum at Plough Lane, a space dedicated to telling “The Greatest Story” in football and giving the club’s history pride of place in their fantastic new stadium.

To help launch the first UK Read Hour, Moomintroll joined Phillip Ardagh, author of The World of Moominvalley, at Waterstones in Kingston. The popular Finnish literacy initiative encourages children to spend just one hour of their day reading, helping to spark a love of reading and writing in young people around the globe.

Wallace & Gromit’s creator, Nick Park unveiled a new Wallace & Gromit bench and the cracking pair were on hand to help! Based on the cheese-loving inventor and his loyal companion as they appeared in The Wrong Trousers, the bench sculpture has pride of place outside Market Hall in Preston.

Finally, last weekend Master Moley attended the premiere of his new TV series in Leicester Square, walking the red carpet alongside Warwick Davis! You can watch Moley from Monday 4th October at 5.30pm on Boomerang.
