MIDDLESBROUGH HOSTS MAGICAL WALKING WITH THE SNOWMAN TRAIL
MAGICAL Middlesbrough has secured a major Christmas coup with “Walking with The Snowman” trail coming to the North-east for the very first time. In a tribute to Raymond Briggs’ magical classic The Snowman™, 12 giant snowman sculptures will be placed in a trail around Middlesbrough town centre from Saturday, 2 November 2019 until Saturday 4 January 2020.
The trail will play a big part in the wider Magical Middlesbrough Christmas celebrations for the 2019 festive season. Presented by Wild in Art, and in association with Penguin Ventures, part of Penguin Random House UK, the 1.65m sculptures will be decorated by professional artists around a ‘12 Days of Christmas’ theme.
Cllr Ashley Waters, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, said:
“We are thrilled to have been selected by Wild in Art and Penguin Ventures to host a ‘Walking with The Snowman’ trail in Middlesbrough this year. The twelve sculptures, which will include some designs from talented local artists, will be a vibrant addition to Middlesbrough’s festivities and we look forward to seeing all your Snow-fies!”
