Meet our ‘Snow’ Star

When is it?

16th September – 26th November 2017

The Red Dragon Centre has been transformed into Hollywood, or rather Holly-woof, with the arrival of ‘Oscar the Snowdog‘.

Oscar is part of the much hyped spectacular art trail, Snowdogs: Tails in Wales, which has been organised by children’s hospice charity Tŷ Hafan, public art producers Wild in Art and is inspired by THE SNOWMAN™ AND THE SNOWDOG, the animated sequel to Raymond Briggs’ iconic picture book and film THE SNOWMAN™.

For ten weeks between 16 September and 26 November 2017, Oscar the Snowdog will be taking centre stage inside The Red Dragon Centre on his very own red carpeted plinth, and will be very happy to star in your selfies! What’s more, when you unlock Oscar on the official Snowdogs app, you’ll be rewarded with a treat AND there will also be a chance to find some of his smaller pup companions throughout the Centre! Ice-cream experts Cadwaladers and the ODEON cinema will house the pups whose designers include Ysgol Y Deri, Greenhill Special School, Malpas Park School and Christchurch College Brecon.

At the end of the trail, the large Snowdog sculptures, including Oscar, will be sold at auction to raise funds for Tŷ Hafan and support children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

Oscar the Snowdog wants to be your fur-end! Follow him now on Facebook and Twitter at @OscartheSnowdog for all the latest razzle and dazzle.
