Snowdogs : Tails in Wales

16 September to 26 November

A pack of Snowdogs has been unleashed onto the Cardiff’s streets, iconic buildings and open spaces as part of an extraordinary public art trail in aid of Ty Hafan children’s Hospice.

The theme of Snowdogs: Tails in Wales is inspired by the much-loved novel and animated film, The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, based on characters created by Raymond Briggs. It’s the story of a little boy who is mourning the death of his pet dog and is comforted when the Snowman and Snowdog he builds mysteriously come to life and take him on a magical adventure.

Ty Hafan was particularly drawn to the themes of dealing with loss and friendship in The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, which relate to the support offered at the hospice in Sully and in communities across Wales.
