This Swindog design was inspired by Julia’s House charity and Clementianna, the wicked Queen of Snow White, and was chosen by sponsor, Wyvern Theatre.
Sponsor: Wyvern Theatre
The Wyvern Theatre has been a much loved venue in Swindon for over 50 years. The theatre, in the centre of town, was opened on 7 September 1971 by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip and is the largest theatre in Wiltshire.
After the trail finishes the Swindogs will be auctioned to raise vital funds for Julia’s House, your local children’s hospice charity. If you have sponsored a uniquely designed and decorated big balloon dog sculpture this will be your chance to adopt your Swindog. Then it can go to its forever home where it can be enjoyed for many years to come!Find out more
