- Meet Santa at Anglia Square

We’re making Christmas more magical by entering those who click going on our Facebook event into a prize draw for a Norwich Theatre Royal gift card.
2. My First Panto: Cinderella Rocks!
The Garage’s My First Panto is the only pantomime that encourages the audience to get up and join in! Aimed at children under 7, but being fun for the whole family, this years panto is a fresh take on Cinderella, telling the tale of Ella, who dreams of being a world-famous rock star but she must clean and cook for her horrid sisters. As a Christmas gift from Anglia Square to you, we’re giving away a family ticket for the performance (1x adult and 3x children or 2x adults and 2x children), to enter, follow @AngliaSq and @theGarageNorwich, like our competition post and tell us your favourite thing about Christmas!
3. Follow The Crown Trail
900 years ago, King Henry I choose Norwich Castle as the venue for his Christmas court, and as told by Visit England, Norwich is still one of the top 10 most festive places for a Christmas break in the UK. To celebrate the Kings visit, over 80 businesses and locations are taking part in a festive crown trail around the city. Choose from a number of trails, journeying through time down Norwich lanes with the Gold trail, along the river banks on the red trail, and from the cathedral to the tunnel of light with the purple trail. Download the trail map here.
4. Visit The Norwich Tunnel of Light
Norwich’s most loved and anticipated Christmas attraction is back! The Tunnel of Light reopened earlier this week, with over 57,000 LED bulbs shining bright in the city centre. The attraction is situated opposite The Forum, is free to attend and will be bringing sparkle to the city until the 5th January 2022.
