Carousel Calendars’ strong line up of licensed products will be joined by three new big acquisitions for 2020, in the form of two rather different but equally charming animal-based animations, and a major fashion brand.

First seen in the Wallace and Gromit series from Aardman Animations, Shaun the Sheep has become a breakout star with his own television programme and will be appearing in his second feature film, ‘Farmageddon’, later this year. Carousel Calendars has entered a partnership with Aardman Animations and Start Licensing to produce three new products that will accompany Shaun’s big screen outing, including a slim calendar, wall calendar and handy diary.
Watership Down, the classic by Richard Adams, has been beautifully reimagined as a four-part animated television event for Netflix and the BBC, following the story of a ragtag band of rabbits fleeing the destruction of their warren in search of safety and a better future. The 2020 range from Carousel Calendars will include a wall calendar, slim calendar and A5 diary, which feature wonderfully delicate imagery that perfectly complements this epic story.
Carousel Calendars are very excited to be creating a partnership with renowned fashion designer Orla Kiely, using her globally-recognised iconic designs and patterns to provide the basis for a range of sophisticated, high-quality 2020-dated products. The collection is planned to include a comprehensive variety of calendars and diaries, from traditional formats such as the slim and wall calendar and A5 diary, to more compact options like the easel, slim diary and magnetic memo.
