NORWICHRISTMAS TREE ART TRAIL
From 17 November until twelfth night (5 January), Norwich city centre will be home to 21, individually designed, 7.5ft high wooden Christmas trees. The Tree Art Trail will add to the excitement of Christmas in Norwich, helping children and families to explore our beautiful city throughout the Christmas period.
Shops and businesses around the city will host the trees. Look out for the individual map and activity sheet that will be available to guide children and families around the locations. At each tree site there will be a stamp. Trail followers that collect ten or more stamps on their trail map can enter a prize draw to win some exciting prizes, all donated by local businesses.
Each tree will be decorated with eye-catching and family-friendly designs, based on traditional Christmas themes. Local artists have been painting, sculpting and crafting to create individual designs that range from fun and quirky to simple and stunning.
In keeping with the true Christmas spirit, money donated by each of the businesses hosting a tree will go to Norwich Open Christmas which provides lunch and entertainment for those who are homeless or on their own on Christmas Day.
The event is a true example of partnership working in Norwich. The Tree Art Trail has been organized by Norwich City Centre Partnership as part of NORWICHRISTMAS. All the wood for the trees has been provided by Chapelfield Shopping Centre with prisoners from Norwich prison building the wooden trees. Norwich Arts Centre have delivered the project with local artists.
