Cheese, Gromit?


This Saturday the People’s Production Lab in Guild Hall Street will kick-up a stink with a smelly-vision screening of Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.  

The Scratch n Sniff Cinema event will raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust at the screening from 11am to 1pm on Saturday.

From Stinking Bishop to Bunny Burps, immerse your senses in the duo’s first feature-length film from Aardman, complete with giant vegetables, ‘Anti-Pesto’, and a mysterious beast on the loose.

Merlin Crossingham, Creative Director for Wallace and Gromit, said: “We spend ages working on how our films look and sound because that is how cinema works.

“Entertainment for your eyes and ears. So having the ability to add smell to the cinematic experience is tantalising, your nose will be left out no longer.”
