Just in time for Christmas The Postal Museum exhibition will feature two much-loved clay characters, Wallace and Gromit (and some other friends). This exhibit takes you behind the scenes at Aardman revealing the creative process of making a special set of Christmas stamps for Royal Mail. From creator Nick Park’s original concept sketches to scenes inside the studio, you will get a unique insight into the magic of Aardman and the craft of stamp design.
