Snowdogs Discover Ashford 2018

Snowdog Art Trails are a series of individually designed giant Snowdog sculptures, painted by both well-known and undiscovered artists. The magical sculpture trail showcases the rich cultural offer and wealth of artistic talent in the area and raises funds to support local charities.

Ashford was like a scene from The Snowman and The Snowdog, the animated sequel to Raymond Briggs’ classic story, The Snowman™, as a magical art trail arrived in the borough in autumn 2018. Snowdog sculptures bounded into the streets, parks, and open spaces to encourage everyone to discover Ashford and creating a festive feel in the lead up to Christmas.

After the 10-week display, each Snowdog sculpture was auctioned by Pilgrims Hospices to help raise funds for the local charity.
