Walking with The Snowman™

20 November 21  – 16 January 22
South Derbyshire Council

In winter 2021, we took a wintry walk around The Snowman™ and The Snowdog Swadlincote, 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 were on display from 20th November 2021 until 16 January 2022. They could be found around Swadlincote town centre from Greenbank Leisure Centre to Swadlincote Snowsports Centre, the Pipeworks and Bus station.

This initiative was organised by South Derbyshire Council and Wild in Art and was funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
