Fenwick revealed its much-anticipated Newcastle Christmas window theme Clarice Bean: Think Like an Elf, which magically depicts the much-loved character Clarice Bean trying ‘exceptionordinarily’ hard to save her family’s Christmas and stop the Christmas spirit completely floating away.

“Christmas cannot be Christmas without the Christmas spirit, so it is important to keep an eye and not let it float away.”

This year’s theme was created in partnership with award-winning children’s author and illustrator Lauren Child CBE. This is the first time, since the launch of the first Christmas window display over 50 years ago, that Fenwick has worked directly with an author to design the window theme. Lauren Child has also provided a narration of the story to accompany the reveal, which will be premiered to a global audience on the Fenwick official YouTube channel.

The spectacularly joyful Clarice Bean Christmas Window display took place in front of a small number of invited guests, including children and families from Fenwick’s partner schools, hospitals and charities, and will be in place at Fenwick Newcastle from Monday 7th November through to early January for all to experience and enjoy.

Filled with warmth and irresistible humour, Think Like an Elf is a tale of unwavering Christmas spirit of the extraordinary, effervescent, and beloved Clarice Bean as she navigates her way to a fun-filled, circus-inspired Christmas. The story is told over the eight windows of the Northumberland Steet store frontage where we are transported into Clarice’s world as we are introduced to her home, her family, and her friends as we join her on a quest to bring the circus to town this Christmas. Clarice and Fenwick share an equal love of the circus, as this year Fenwick’s 140th anniversary celebrations drew huge influence from Arthur Fenwick’s passion for the circus.
