A grand night out

Have your say

AN EMMY-nominated animator will be making an appearance in Sheffield to talk about the characters he has helped to create.

Merlin Crossingham of Aardman Animations will present a talk and demonstration on popular characters ranging from Wallace and Gromit to Morph.

Merlin, who was the key animator on Chicken Run, will be bringing puppets with him to show how they are made and used in animation.

The presentation, and a Q&A session, will take place at the Holiday Inn Royal Victoria from 7pm on Friday, October 28.

Tickets are £5, or £15 for a family of four, with proceeds going to Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.

There will also be a raffle of prizes donated by Aardman.
