Have you heard about the fantastic arts trail, Snowdogs Discover Ashford? This is a magical display of Snowdog sculptures, themed around Raymond Briggs’ sequel to ‘The Snowman’; ‘The Snowdog’.

It will be made up of beautifully crafted, giant Snowdog sculptures dotted around the Ashford area, proudly brought to you by Ashford Borough Council and Pilgrims Hospices. 2018 marks the 40th anniversary of this British classic, with the arts trail bringing both festive spirit and crowds of visitors to Ashford in the lead up to Christmas this year.

At the end of the event, the Snowdogs will be auctioned off, with all proceeds going to Pilgrims Hospices.

As proud sponsors of the arts trail, our Motorline Ashford centres, Dacia, Hyundai, Nissan, Peugeot, Renault and Toyota, are very excited to announce that we will have our own unique Snowdog on the trail – our tails are already wagging with excitement!

We can’t wait to see all of the fantastic Snowdogs around the Ashford area – make sure to follow our social media accounts, to get a first glimpse of our exclusive Snowdog in the lead up to September’s trail.

Design A Snowdog

In celebration of this fantastic event, we have two perfect Snowpups, which will be showcased at our Motorline Ashford centres and you have the chance to help us design them!

The two Snowpups will tour around the Ashford Motorline showrooms twice; once before the designs have been painted and once after. The winning designs will be proudly displayed within each of our Motorline Ashford showrooms for one week, as well as in a number of retail locations throughout the duration of the event.

To enter, download your entry form below and hand this into your nearest Motorline Ashford centre by Sunday 12th August.

This offers the chance to showcase your artistic talents locally and means that your design could be seen by audiences of thousands!

Good Luck!
