This exhibition celebrates the 30th anniversary of the animated version of Raymond Briggs’ popular children’s book “The Snowman.” Originally written in 1978, the picture book was adapted for the screen by Dianne Jackson in 1982, and it has since captivated audiences worldwide.

The story focuses on a little boy who creates a snowman that magically comes to life. The two then go on a wintry adventure that involves flying across the world. This tale became so popular that it has been retold in many forms, including as a stage play and a video game. A short animated sequel, “The Snowman and the Snowdog,” was also made in 2012.
