Gromit as a lion? Well 29. Alex the Lion is one of my favourite sculptures this year and I think Gromit works very well as a lion.
Alex the lion is a character from the Madagascar films. I like the mane effect.
Alex can be found just outside the MShed guarding the Harbourside. I was a little surprised that there are three Gromit in and around the MShed and a Wallace in Whapping Wharf. Not quite sure I understand why they grouped these, but then put others in the middle of nowhere! Ah well.
Canopy & Stars at Crane 29 is a unique treehouse built around one of the cargo cranes outside M Shed. The treehouse will grace Bristol’s skyline from June until September 2017.
I don’t know if you can really call it a treehouse as it’s not built in a tree, but it certainly looks very nice (see more pictures here).
To register for the ballot to stay in the treehouse, visit www.canopyandstars.co.uk/crane29. A night’s stay costs either £185 for a weekday or £250 for a weekend, with the final ballot open until July 3. All profits from Canopy & Stars at Crane 29 will go to Friends of the Earth.
