The Metro system is to play a key part in Tyne and Wear’s biggest ever mass participation public art event – Great North Snowdogs
The colourful Snowdog trail, which launches on Monday, September 19, will see 61 individually designed Snowdog sculptures displayed in local venues, parks and open spaces – and almost all are in easy reach of a Metro station.
Great North Snowdogs is inspired by Raymond Briggs’ classic animated short film The Snowman™ and The Snowdog and is a large-scale public art trail which brings to life the lovable Snowdog character from the 2012 sequel to The Snowman.
The Tyne and Wear Metro is a presenting partner of the Snowdog trail and will play a vital role in helping people to explore it.

As part of this partnership two dogs have been added to the trail on behalf of Metro including Pawdington by Mandii Pope, a Paddington Bear-themed design, to be found at the Customs House in South Shields.
Meanwhile Guide Dog by Mike Clay at North Shields Fish Quay features an intricate map of the local area – and is expected to be active on social media answering questions about the trail from explorers. this snog dog at paw lane ends tyne and wear metro
