The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, Swadlincote

Take a wintry walk around The Snowman™ and The Snowdog Swadlincote and enjoy a festive sculpture trail inspired by the animated sequel to Raymond Briggs’ timeless picture book The Snowman™.

In the heart-warming story, a young boy builds a snowman and creates a snowdog with the remaining snow.  At midnight both of his creations magically come to life.

Wild in Art’s collection of twelve beautifully painted Snowmen, each inspired by the classic song The Twelve Days of Christmas and eight uniquely decorated Snowdogs are waiting to be discovered from 20th November 2021. Find them around Swadlincote town centre from Greenbank Leisure Centre to Swadlincote Snowsports Centre, the Pipeworks and Bus station until 16th January 2022.
