Morph in the North!

The world’s first ever Morph art trail has hit the streets of North Tyneside.

Twenty individually designed Morph sculptures can be found in and around the borough’s town centres until Sunday 3 April.

Morph’s Epic Art Adventure sees colourful life-sized models of the Aardman favourite found in Whitley Bay, Wallsend, Killingworth, Forest Hall, Tynemouth, North Shields and Cullercoats.

The trail is inspired by the iconic clay character who made his TV debut in 1977 on the BBC children’s art programme Take Hart, alongside artist and presenter Tony Hart.

William Harbutt, the inventor of plasticine, was born in North Tyneside, so where better to have the world premiere of such an amazing attraction!?
