Get ready to Countdown to Christmas

Countdown to Christmas
Get ready to countdown to Christmas.
Published on Wednesday, 17th November 2021

Details of the city’s first Countdown to Christmas can be revealed today as Norwich prepares to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.

A selection box of free entertainment will see a different act performing in the city centre every Sunday, offering shoppers and diners a range of festive fun in the lead up to Christmas.

From a Mariachi band to a Disco Shed, the Countdown to Christmas will invite residents of all ages to step into the festive spirit this year.

The first of this series of merry pop-up events gets underway this Sunday 21 November, and will see UK Gospel Choir performing to city shoppers around Hay Hill.

As well as one of the most talented and professional choirs in Europe, shoppers may also catch a glimpse of some cheeky elves and other jolly characters as they wander through the city.

The Yuletide scene is already set after the city’s Christmas lights, including Norwich BID’s Tunnel of Light, were switched on last night.  

Alan Waters, leader of Norwich City Council, said: “This charming line up promises to add some extra sparkle to the atmosphere in the city this Christmas.

“Spreading these free, family events across five weeks gives residents more opportunities to soak up the festivities and should be a timely boost for local businesses.”
