WIN Two Tickets to this event!

In 1980, the outdoor clothing company Rohan produced the original multi-functional Outdoor Trousers – 4 security pockets, side expansion panels, reinforced knees and a D ring for clipping on keys or water bottles. They can’t walk up walls and won’t run away with you when you least expect it, but they do take up less space in the wardrobe, and they’re easier to get into. Nick Park, creator of Wallace and Gromit, liked them so much Rohan sent him a pair, and in return he sent the company a model of a pair of ‘legs’, wearing the famous trousers.

To celebrate the Aardman Model Workshops coming to the Stratford Literary Festival on Saturday 28th April, staff from the Rohan shop in Sheep Street, Stratford upon Avon, will be taking their legs to meet the Aardman model makers, and they’re offering you the opportunity to come along and create your own Aardman model.

To WIN two pairs of tickets (one adult, one child per pair) to create Gromit at the model workshop at 4pm at Stratford Primary School, Broad Street, simply answer the follow question and email it to us here
