Fenwick Newcastle's Christmas Window


In 2020, Fenwick's Christmas window was based on classic children's book The Wind in the Willows! The stunning festive display saw Mr Toad up to his usual tricks as he tried to run off with Santa's sack of Christmas presents.

Due to ongoing restrictions around coronavirus, the fabulous display was revealed as part of a live stream on Fenwick Newcastle's Facebook page. However, visitors were able to view Fenwick Newcastle Christmas window in person following social distancing measures.

We are, therefore, even more excited to experience the 2021 Fenwick Christmas Window in its full, festive glory. The must-see display typically is revealed in early November and visitors can then view the windows right through the Christmas period until the end of December. The big question is - what will this year's theme be? Check back for more information.
