The Kirkwood will be taking over Huddersfield’s famous Christmas Tipi for one day only this December. On Wednesday 22nd December, from 2pm, we’ll be hosting a fun filled, family friendly and FREE event inside the Tipi in Huddersfield’s, St George’s Square.



It’s an event that’s bound to get tails wagging, with plenty of activities planned throughout the day. We’re thrilled to announce that there we are putting on a very special showing of the classic Christmas animated film The Snowman™ and the Snowdog, created by Raymond Briggs. With festive games, arts and crafts and even face painting, kids young and old will be sure to get into the festive spirit at this completely free event.

During the event you will be able to find out more about our incredibly exciting public Art Trail, Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees which is set to be unleashed on a street near you in  Autumn of 2022. Families will even have the chance to have their photo taken with one of our huge Snowdog sculptures as part of the fun!

The free event has been made possible thanks to the support of Huddersfield Live and will see the Tipi being taken over from 2pm, with a special screening of The Snowman™ and the Snowdog commencing at 3pm.

And there’s more!



From 5.30pm there will be an opportunity to join our Business Movement for a fabulously festive pre-Christmas meet up. If you represent a business why not come along, relax, enjoy a festive tipple and find out how your business can get involved with Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees in 2022.

If you’re still on the fence, we’ll be serving mulled wine and mince pies throughout the event!

The Kirkwood’s Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees Tipi Takeover is a free public event- it’s open to everyone. We can’t wait to see you there.



This family friendly event is a great opportunity to show off the amazing Snowdog sculptures that  will form part of a groundbreaking public art event right here in Kirklees in Autumn 2022.

Organised in partnership with Wild in Art and Snowdog Enterprises Ltd, Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees will be a free event for everyone to enjoy. It’s set to bring a real buzz to our region, attracting thousands of visitors and helping families to enjoy the great outdoors together.

Thirty uniquely designed Snowdog sculptures, all hand decorated by talented artists from across our region and beyond, will form a unique trail that stretches across Kirklees, bringing colour and conversation to our towns and villages and celebrating local culture.

Thirty smaller Snowdogs will form a mini trail. Running alongside the main art trail, our Snowdog pups will be designed by children from local schools and groups, giving our younger generation a unique opportunity to be involved.
