'Shaun the Sheep Farm Garden' attraction to open in Japan
ardman and Tohokushinsha Film Corporation are delighted to announce plans to open a brand new Shaun the Sheep area at the English Garden Rosa & Berry, an English garden themed attraction in Tawada, Japan.
‘Shaun the Sheep Farm Garden’ will be a new facility within the garden where children and adults can have fun together through ‘seeing’, ‘experiencing’, ‘learning’ and ‘eating’.
The attraction will showcase life-sized versions of sets from the award-winning world of Shaun the Sheep, such as the Farmer’s House and the Sheep’s Barn alongside a number of statues of popular characters including Shaun, Bitzer and the Farmer. The attraction will also feature a café with an outdoor terrace and a multipurpose facility, available for hosting exhibitions and events, to provide further fun for the entire family.
Ngaio Harding-Hill, Senior Manager Attractions and Live Experiences at Aardman comments on the announcement; “We are delighted by the opportunity to partner with Merry Days Co. Ltd to create the first reproduction of Mossy Bottom Farm at the beautiful English Garden Rosa & Berry in Japan. Set in the stunning countryside around Tawada, the English Garden provides the perfect setting for visitors to have a truly immersive experience, stepping into the world of Shaun the Sheep and visiting the Farmer’s house and the Flock’s barn. And in the exhibition space they’ll have the opportunity to explore how the show is made in more detail with lots of behind the scenes exhibits.”
‘Shaun the Sheep’s Farm Garden’ will open in April 2019.
