Have you heard about Wallace & Gromit's Great British Tea Party yet? Find out more below....

A cup of tea is part of the great British way of life and Aardman’s tea-loving heroes Wallace and Gromit are calling on people across the UK to enjoy a ‘cuppa’ for charity and help raise thousands of pounds for sick children.

People from all walks of life are being invited to put the kettle on and take part in ‘Wallace & Gromit’s Great British Tea Party’ on Friday 5th December - a brand new fundraising event, launched by national charity Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation and sponsored by Yorkshire Tea. Funds raised will improve the quality of life for children and their families in a network of hospitals and hospices nationwide.

The event takes place as the famous plasticine duo are set to star in a new 30 minute short film ‘A Matter of Loaf and Death’ to be broadcast in December 2008.

Nick Park, creator of Wallace & Gromit and trustee of the Children’s Foundation, says: “A quintessentially British tea party is just my cup of tea and it’s a great opportunity for Wallace to show off his three-spouted teapot invention! Joining in the event couldn’t be easier - simply call 0845 600 1924 or visit to sign up today.”

Charity organisers are expecting more than 100,000 people to take part on the 5th December, by holding or joining in a tea party and inviting friends, family and work colleagues to come along and make a donation to the Children’s Foundation.

To find out more about the Great British Tea Party on Friday 5th December, log on to or call 0845 6001924.

Those registering to take part by the 31st October will be entered into a free prize draw to win a year’s supply of Yorkshire Tea. They will also receive a free fundraising pack with exclusive party items for a traditional tea-time celebration, including Wallace & Gromit party invites and tea coasters, Yorkshire tea vouchers, balloons and the chance to win £10,000 worth of John Lewis vouchers in ‘Gromit’s Grid’ game.

Thanks for the info katie.

Does that mean that they want us to have out legs up and sit down with a Cuppa while watching Wallace and Gromit in a Matter of Loaf and Death on the 5th of December, I would rather be in for a Hot Choc but if its a Cuppa anything will do. Also how will the money be raised? is it by buying Yorkshire Tea?

hmmm since the release dates haven't been finialised yet, I think the tea part will be an event all on its own!

You can raise money by holding your own tea party and then asking your guests to donate some money for taking part and enjoying lots of lovely tea and cakes!
As a BIG tea fan myself I can't wait! :)

If you do decide to host your own tea party don't forget to register for a free party planning pack - I've had a sneak peek and they're great!
