This week has absolutely flown by! On our final day we’ve had some more fantastic talks to end the week on a high – let’s have a look at some of the highlights…

He brought a few of his favourite characters with him, including Shaun the Sheep himself, and talked through the whole process of putting an animation film together – which usually take 3-5 years!
