Imagine creating everyone´s  favourite snowman, that comes to life one winter’s night, to begin an unforgettable adventure. Raymond Briggs’ did just that, and now this favourite classic is a true piece of Christmas magic – narrated entirely through pictures, it captures the wonder and innocence of childhood and is now recognised throughout the world. In 2012 the 30th anniversary of The Snowman was celebrated with a brand new half-hour animation The Snowman and the Snowdog. The imaginator, creator, writer and illustrator of The Snowman, and many other wondrous tales and unforgettable characters, died on Tuesday 9th August 2022. So come follow your art down sidetracks as we sneak past Fungus The Bogeyman to learn more about his author. We may never quite see his like again
