Larger than life balloon dog sculpture unveiled for 2023

In addition to the Leeds Bear and Jersey Tortoise, another brand new Wild in Art sculpture has been unveiled for 2023

In partnership with Julia’s House Children’s Hospice, more than 30 balloon dog sculptures – the Swindogs – are to be unleashed across Swindon in 2023 for The Big Dog Art Trail.

Each giant sculpture will feature a unique design, created by chosen artists and sponsored by local businesses. There will also be more than 30 smaller Swinpups joining the trail, created by local schools and community groups.

You’ll be able to spot each sculpture on the Big Dog Art Trail, which will take you through some of Swindon’s best-loved landmarks, parks and public space

And when walkies are over, it will be time for the farewell party and sculpture auction to raise vital funds for the charity.

Whether you’re a life-long local or a new visitor, go on a Swindog adventure in this celebration of art, culture and community.
