Dogs Trail Cardiff With Snoopy
DOGS TRAIL CARDIFF WITH SNOOPY
To celebrate Dog’s Trust’s new rehoming centre coming to Cardiff. A Dog’s Trail is a spectacular, free public art trail that runs from 8th April – 5th June. For 8 weeks the streets of Cardiff, Cardiff Bay, Caerphilly and Porthcawl are home to a series of intricately decorated Snoopy sculptures, each designed by local, regional and national artists , designers and illustrators – both well-known favourites and newly emerging talent .
Each sculpture is sponsored by a business or individual, celebrating the vibrancy, culture and creativity the region has to offer. The trail’s aim is to raise significant funding towards the work of the Dogs Trust so that they can continue to provide their services for those who need them the most.
A Dog’s Trail is a special event that promotes health and wellbeing, brings businesses and communities together and helps boost the regional economy across Cardiff, Caerphilly and Porthcawl.
If you haven’t already done so download the app for free and start ‘collecting’ all the Snoopy’s on the trail. There are 40 large Snoopy’s on display outside in the various locations and 75 miniature Snoopy’s created by local schools.
The Farewell weekend will be 17th-19th June where all the large sculptures are together on the City Hall Lawn – tickets are for sale for this event online.
The auction is the final event for the Dog’s Trail with Snoopy where the the sculptures will be auctioned off to raise funds for Dog’s Trust at the Coal Exchange, Cardiff 21st June.
We have our very own local artist who had her design commissioned for her Snoopy (entitled- ’Quit Dragon Your Heels’). Amy Bainbridge lives in Wenvoe and studies Illustration at the University of South Wales in Cardiff. Her design is on display opposite Caerphilly Castle and was sponsored by Caerphilly Council in a nationwide competition run by Wild in Art.
Well done from all your family we are very proud of your achievement!!
