Walking with the Snowman

Take a wintry walk around MediaCityUK this Christmas time to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Raymond Briggs’ heart-warming picture book, The Snowman. There are twelve giant Snowman sculptures waiting to be found, each based on the song The Twelve Days of Christmas, as well as smaller Snowmen beautifully decorated by local schools and groups.
