Presented by creative producers Wild in Art, working in partnership with St Oswald's Children’s Hospice, for ten weeks during Autumn and Winter 2016, the North East’s streets, parks and open spaces will become home to a series of individually designed Snowdog sculptures. Creating a public art trail of beautiful Snowdog sculptures, based on the story The Snowman and The Snowdog, by Raymond Briggs.

 Once the trail ends, the sculptures will be auctioned at a glittering event in December 2016, to raise funds for St Oswald’s Children’s Hospice. A separate trail of smaller Snowdogs, created by local school children and community groups will also be exhibited, celebrating the talent of the young people of the North East.


Starting on Monday 25th of July – Friday 30th September there will be a trial which will temporarily designate an area as “Dogs on Leads” only.
