VIP Steam Engine Escort for Great British Spoon Gorilla

A world-famous sculpture, created from the generosity of the children of Shropshire and those around the globe, will shortly make a VIP appearance at a prestigious local event – and has been visited by a very special escort!

The British Ironwork Centre’s spectacular Great British Spoon Gorilla will appear at Shrewsbury Steam Rally at Onslow Park on August 24th and 25th and has received a special visit from one of the stunning Steam Engines that will be on show for guests at the event.

The Centre was delighted to accept the invitation for the monstrous sculpture to appear at the event prior to beginning his tour of Children’s Hospitals and Hospices.

Clive Knowles, the Centre’s Chairman, said “We’re excited and feel very privileged to be taking the Great British Spoon Gorilla to Shrewsbury Steam Rally – it is a wonderful Shropshire event, with a very proud history.  It has been wonderful to see the Steam Engine here today – the Gorilla has received such special treatment from the organising committee that he feels like a rock star!”
