12 decorated recreations of The Snowman will appear in central London this Christmas, for the capital's latest free sculpture trail.
The Walking with The Snowman art trail features a dozen 1.6m-tall, individually painted sculptures inspired by the 12 Days Of Christmas, designed by various artists. The models are a tribute to both the animated festive film, and the original picture book by Raymond Briggs.
Birmingham based illustrator and designer Jessica Perrin is one of the artists involved. Her take on the Twelve Drummers involves a gingerbread-esque Snowman with a marching band made up of 12 tiny drumming mice. Manchester based artist Jenny Leonard tackled Four Calling Birds, with a cheeky modern play on words and a Snowman featuring London's skyline and landmarks.
Each figure is mounted on a recyclable plinth made from waste plastic, alongside a plaque about the artist and their inspiration for their designs.
Head to the Fleet Street Quarter to find the chilly chaps located in Chancery Lane, New Street Square, Ludgate Hill and Fleet Street. It's one of six festive trails taking place around the UK this Christmas by public art producer Wild in Art, which is also responsible for the Croydon Stands Tall giraffe trail.
The Walking with The Snowman art trail appears in the Fleet Street Quarter from 20 November 2023 until January 2024, and is free to visit. Keep an eye on the Fleet Street Quarter website for further details.
