Spot the city’s Christmas trees and win a prize

Families are being encouraged to carry on the festivities by spotting some very special Christmas trees dotted around Norwich.

And by taking part in the NORWICHRISTMAS Tree Art Trail people also have the chance to win great prizes which have just been revealed.

First prize includes �200 of shopping vouchers along with theatre and cinema vouchers – and there are nine other prizes on offer.

Stefan Gurney, from the Norwich City Centre Partnership, said: 'We have some really great prizes for the NORWICHRISTMAS Tree Art Trail and we would like to thank all the businesses and organisations that have donated them. It will be a real added bonus for families to win these nice prizes after Christmas.'

The tree trail, which is a Norwich City Centre Partnership project managed by Norwich Arts Centre, features 21 individually designed Christmas trees, featuring everything from crochet squares to Brussels sprouts to graffiti art.

People can take part in the trail competition by spotting 10 of the trees and collecting stamps from each of the sites.

Mr Gurney said so far there had been a great response to the festive art project and he urged more families to get involved.

'The trees are really varied and beautiful pieces of art, and the tree trail is a nice thing for the whole family to do together – collect your stamps and you could win some great prizes,' he added.

'It is something nice to do in the city especially after the Christmas rush is over and it is on until January 5.'

Mr Gurney also praised the way many organisations – including Norwich Arts Centre, Norwich Prison, Chapelfield and a whole host of others – have got together to make the trail a success.
