A Partridge in a Pear Tree, Walking with the Snowman™ #1
A Partridge in a Pear Tree, Walking with the Snowman™ #1
The first sculpture on the trail, the iconic “Partridge in a Pear Tree” was designed by artist Jodie Silverman. A pear tree grows all the way up the Snowman™, from his feet to the tip of his red, heart-shaped nose. Two friendly partridges, one for each side of the sculpture, perch on frosty branches under a twinkling sky. The design is traditionally festive, glistening with snow and covered in wintry foliage.

Walking with the Snowman™

In place at from November 22nd 2018 until January 6th 2019, Walking with The Snowman is the first public sculpture trail inspired by the Raymond Briggs’ classic Christmas story “The Snowman™”. The trail consists of twelve giant snowman sculptures situated across Salford Quays and MediaCityUK to celebrate 40th anniversary of the original publication of the book.

Themed around the song The Twelve Days of Christmas, each sculpture is designed and decorated by one of twelve professional artists, all of whom painted a Bee for this year’s Bee in the City event Link . At the end of the event, they will be auctioned with proceeds going to the Children in Need charity. As well as the large snowmen, there are also a number of smaller snowmen decorated by local schools and community groups.
