New Animations From Aardman’s AardBoiled To Be Added To The Big Screen Portsmouth


The Big Screen Portsmouth - a partnership between Portsmouth City Council and the University of Portsmouth - is proud to announce a new working relationship with Aardman, the team behind the likes of Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep

Starting on Saturday 20 July 2019, the Big Screen Portsmouth in Guildhall Square will be screening a selection of short animations from the AardBoiled YouTube channel. 

The films feature a mix of brand new content from well-known creators and exciting new talent, along with lesser-known gems from the Aardman back catalogue. Together they celebrate a range of different animation techniques and visual styles.

Six different animations will be shown daily within the content schedule and will play at either 19 or 49 minutes past the hour.
