The TV show and events aim to encourage young people to be innovative
Clay duo Wallace and Gromit will kick off a series of regional roadshows in their home city of Bristol in November.
The World of Invention roadshows are being staged at shopping centres this autumn to accompany a BBC One series fronted by the pair.
The six free roadshows take place on consecutive weekends from 6/7 November in Bristol, Kent, Glasgow, Milton Keynes, Manchester and Derby.
Budding inventors will have the chance to try a range of creative activities.
6-7 November: Cabot Circus, Bristol
13-14 November: Bluewater, Kent
20-21 November: Silverburn, south Glasgow
27-28 November: thecentre:mk, Milton Keynes
4-5 December: Trafford Centre, Manchester
11-12 December: Westfield, Derby
Children aged seven and over can try their hand at building their own version of Wallace's "run-about steam chair", while children aged three and over can play at the clay station.
Each weekend a designated area of each shopping centre will be transformed into a life-sized replica of Wallace's television studio.
There will also be original animation sets and characters from the show on display.
The events are free to attend, and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
