St Oswald’s Children’s Hospice has teamed up with Wild in Art to stage Tyne and Wear’s biggest ever mass-participation, public art event – Great North Snowdogs! 

The interactive trail features 61 large scale Snowdog sculptures, decorated by artists and inspired by the much loved animated short film, The Snowman™ and The Snowdog. Until 20th November 2016 you can follow the trail using our map, unlock special offers using our dedicated app and to try to see as many of the sculptures as possible.

Alongside our pack of big dogs, we have 97 little sculptures, designed and decorated by local school children. These are displayed in indoor litters across Tyne and Wear and will be on show until 20th January 2017. 

After you have enjoyed Great North Snowdogs, the large sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for St Oswald’s Children’s Hospice. 

Take a scamper around our website to find out more about how you can join the pack!
