Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

WHAT­EVER the weather over the fes­tive sea­son, snow­men are guar­an­teed.

An event to cel­e­brate the 40th an­niver­sary of Ray­mond Briggs’ heart-warm­ing pic­ture book The Snow­man will be taking place around Me­di­aCi­tyUK at Sal­ford Quays.

Walk­ing with The Snow­man will fea­ture 12 gi­ant sculp­tures themed around the song The Twelve Days of Christ­mas.

And each sculp­ture is be­ing de­signed and dec­o­rated by one of 12 tal­ented artists, all of whom painted a bee for the Bee in the City trail, which proved pop­u­lar over the sum­mer.

Many of the artists will be paint­ing in shop at the Lowry Out­let un­til November 16, where peo­ple can see them at work.
