A ‘Snowman’ sculpture trail has popped up in London

By Rosie Hewitson

There’s no snow on the ground just yet, but visitors to London Bridge’s festive market Christmas by the River might still be able to spot a snowman or two on a festive sculpture trail inspired by Raymond Briggs’s classic book and animation ‘The Snowman’.

The ‘Walking with The Snowman’ trail will feature 12 giant snowman sculptures found among the market's 70+ stalls. Designed by 12 talented artists, each sculpture is based around a line of the festive song ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’.

Christmas by the River will also be hosting a series of family workshops to celebrate ‘The Snowman’s arrival in London Bridge City, including a snowman storytelling, and themed arts and crafts events.

It might not be walking in the air, but it’s the next best thing!
