“When we asked Wallace to take part we didn’t know if he was going to say yes as he’s an entrepreneurial, busy person, “I don’t know to what extent Gromit has helped.” The Proms Director amusingly said.
Wright, controller of Radio 3, added: "This is a way of introducing orchestral music to families of all ages and Wallace and Gromit will help us do that."
There will also be a screening of Wallace And Grommit’s A Matter of Loaf and Death with a live orchestra.
