The Snowman and The Snowdog Trail

The Snowman™ and Snowdog fly into Swadlincote for Christmas!

Raymond Brigg’s heart-warming ‘The Snowman™’ and ‘Snowdog’ characters will arrive in Swadlincote on 20 November 2021, in the form of a stunning sculpture trail around the town centre.

The trail is inspired by The Snowman™ and The Snowdog short, animated film released in 2012 and the sequel to Raymond Briggs’ worldwide and much-loved hit The Snowman™. In it, a young boy builds a snowman and creates a snowdog with the remaining snow. At midnight both of his creations come to life.

The magical characters will be in place from 20 November to 16 January, offering plenty of opportunities for visitors to enjoy revisiting their childhood memories.

Put on your hat, scarf and socks and come and say “hello” to the 12 stunning The Snowman™ sculptures, based on the much-loved 12 Days of Christmas song and 8 uniquely designed Snowdogs – they are just waiting to have a selfie taken with you! Share your selfies with us on @TheSnowmanWalk and @SnowdogArtTrail

Walking with The Snowman™ is, brought to Swadlincote by South Derbyshire District Council in partnership with Wild in Art and Penguin Ventures (part of Penguin Random House UK). It is supported by Welcome Back funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)
