Snowdogs by the Sea

Unquestionably one of the most joyful festival attractions, these playful sculptures are so much more than a public art trail adorning Brighton and Hove’s streets, parks and surprise locations. Inspired by the animated short film The Snowman and The Snowdog, which is based on the book by Raymond Briggs, each of the 40 giant Snowdogs has its own, unique character and is specially decorated by artists. A pack of Snowdog puppy sculptures, designed by school children, will also join the art trail at Brighton Museum, Hove Museum and Jubilee library throughout the event.
