A Christmas Paper Trail

Presented by: Norwich Puppet Theatre and the Cathedral Quarter

Thu 16th Nov 2017 to Sat 30th Dec 2017

Price: FREE

Running time: 16 November-30 December

Ages: 0+


16 November - 30 December

This year we've teamed up with four Norfolk schools to create beautiful paper artwork inspired by our Christmas show The Steadfast Tin Soldier 

Follow the paper trail around business windows throughout the Cathedral Quarter of Norwich. Each piece of artwork has a letter - collect all the letters to discover the secret phrase.

Download your print at home map using the link below and follow the trail of paper artwork to our paper castles! TIP: If you print out your map double-sided and fold down the middle, you'll get a nice little booklet. If you don't have a printer, maps can be picked up at the Puppet Theatre or the Tourist Information Centre at the Forum.
