Designs picked for Norwich’s Christmas tree art trail

The final designs have been picked for a special tree trail that will decorate Norwich's streets this Christmas.

About 55 different designs were submitted for the NORWICHRISTMAS tree art trail and the 21 that will feature in the trail have now been chosen.

The trail is a Norwich City Centre Partnership Project being managed by Norwich Arts Centre.

Stuart Hobday, Norwich Arts Centre director, said the project has attracted a lot interest with entries from as far away as Birmingham and Scotland, and he said families visiting the city would be in for a treat when visiting the city this Christmas.

He said: 'The standard of entries was really high and the trees wiil look great in the city centre this Christmas.

'There are a real mix of people taking part including artists, community groups and a school, and there is a real range of designs including a stained glass window, a crochet tree and some street art.'

Mr Hobday said some more sponsors had also come forward to support the project.

'The whole project is moving along nicely,' he said.

'It is going to be really, really bright and colourful and good fun too. Families can collect stamps as they spot the trees and once they collect 10 stamps they will be entered into a prize draw.'

Work will begin on creating the trees this week and they will be on display from November 17 until January 6 and some of the money raised will be donated to Norwich Open Christmas.
