Enjoy public art and support a worthy cause making a difference for families with SnowDogs: Tails in Wales Trail. This charity event features public art installations for all to enjoy followed by an auction of the sculptures to support Ty Hafan, a leading children’s hospice service in Wales. Nathaniel Car Sales Ltd is a proud sponsor or Ty Hafan’s SnowDogs: Tails in Wales.
For ten weeks between 16th September and 26th November 2017, huge Snowdog sculptures will be installed across the city, inspiring people to get out in the fresh air, enjoy being active, and spend quality time together as they find all the sculptures across the city. We know that Snowdogs: Tails in Wales will be a spectacular event, giving voice to the diversity of our capital and showcasing Cardiff and the Vale as a place to love, live, work and play.
This event has been inspired by the novel and animated film, The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, based on characters created by the English illustrator Raymond Briggs. The story is about a young boy mourning the loss of his pet dog. After the boy builds a Snowman and Snowdog, his creations mysteriously come to life. While mourning this loss of his pet, the boy is taken on a magical adventure by the Snowman and Snowdog. This theme of comfort in friendship while facing a loss is one that is reflected by Ty Hafan and the hospice support they provide to families across Wales.
Through Snowdogs: Tails in Wales trail, Ty Hafan aims to get friends, families, local businesses, schools, communities and many others engaged in a fun activity that gets them out in the open air, exploring their city, and making their own precious memories along the route. Together, we can help boost our regional economy, inspire civic pride across the generations and showcase some of the city and region’s best assets that we have to offer. This special event will bring businesses, artists and communities together, provide free days out for children and families and help to create special moments and memories that will last a lifetime.
