Thousands of people gathered outside Fenwick Newcastle tonight to see the highly-anticipated Christmas window theme revealed as it gloriously lit up Northumberland Street under a blanket of snow…
Unveiled by children from The Great North Children’s Hospital, this year’s concept is inspired by the 150th anniversary of beloved children’s author Beatrix Potter.
Marked as the official beginning of Christmas festivities in the North East, this annual display at the flagship Fenwick Newcastle store is one of the largest Christmas showcases in Europe.
Chairman, Mark Fenwick, said “for the 45th anniversary of our Christmas Windows, we are delighted to be able to showcase Beatrix Potter’s fabled characters". Potter's well-loved characters are depicted through the wonderfully whimsical display of her most popular stories – from the iconic Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck and Jeremy Fisher to the Tailor of Gloucester in the final window.
