Animation studio Aardman Animations will be running family-friendly workshops over the weekend, with the chance to learn how to make your very own Gromit, Shaun the Sheep or Feathers McGraw character. The fun, hands-on clay modelling workshops will be led by one of Aardman’s expert model makers - with a chance to quizz them about the tricks of the trade from the Aardman studio.
Leopallooza started as a party in a field on organiser Lee Ellis’ family farm 14 years ago, and has evolved over the years into a sprawling vision of arts, comedy, theatre and music, all taking place on its own handbuilt permanent site. “It’s shaping up to be a massive year,” says Ellis. “We’ve been trying to get Metronomy down for a while now, so we’re all massively happy that they’re going to be headlining on the Friday night. And Goldfrapp are simply legends. We’re all huge fans, and that’s undoubtedly going to be an epic show. But Leopallooza is about more than its headliners. We’ve built a reputation over the years for booking your next favourite band, the one you haven’t heard of yet, as well as the ones you already know and love. And this year we’ve expanded, with more comedy, theatre and family-friendly fun than ever before.”
As well as the crowd-drawing main stage acts of The Clearing, there’s electronic haven The Treeline, comedy area The Funny Side and underground faves The Hong Kong Ping Pong Club and Shi Shi Za Karaoke Bar. Not forgetting the tiniest club there ever was, Dinkies. The enchanting Rogue Theatre will once again curate their own Rogue Wood in among the woodland, where you’ll find family activities including theatre, immersive storytelling, and workshops.
