Rodney Tennant conducts the University of York's auction of ‘Morph’

Rodney Tennant is to conduct the University of York's auction of ‘Morph’ at Bootham School in York on 7 June, 2017 at 6pm.

Peter Lord, Co-founder and Creative Director of Academy Award® winning studio Aardman Animations, and graduate of the University of York returns to the city to share his story as part of the York Festival of Ideas. He’ll be speaking about his role as director and producer of animation classics such as Morph, Creature Comforts, Chicken Run, the Wallace and Gromit series and Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists.

Peter will be creating a model of loveable ‘Morph’ - who many will remember fondly as the animated and mischievous companion to Tony Hart on the BBC - live at the event. Peter's model Morph will then be auctioned off in aid of mental health support at the University. And don’t worry if you can’t make the auction on the evening - you can submit a bid online here by
midday 7 June!

Tickets for the event 'Peter Lord: the story of my life’ are free and can be booked online here.
