Families on the trail of Christmas tree art in Norwich
The NORWICHCHRISTMAS Tree Art Trail has got off to a flying start and has already seen lots of families make their way around the city centre trail.
The fun festive trail was launched last Thursday night, the same night that the city's Christmas lights were switched on at City Hall.
The trail is made up of 21 specially-decorated 7.5ft Christmas trees at venues around Norwich, such as Assembly House, The Forum, The Mall Norwich and the Evening News office in Rouen Road.
Families can get their trail map stamped at each venue – as well as the Tourist Information Centre at The Forum and Norwich Arts Centre – and enjoy the festive shopping on offer in Norwich's shops while they are there.
Once people have collected 10 stamps on their forms they can post them in one of the boxes beside the trees, up until Thursday, January 5. The trail is a Norwich City Centre Partnership Project being managed by Norwich Arts Centre.

Stuart Hobday, centre director, said: 'We've had a big first week, a lot of people have been doing the trail. Several times we've run out of the trail maps at some places and have already had some completed ones returned as well.'
