From Friday 1st December 2017 to Sunday 17th December 2017
From Friday 1 December, the Royal Arcade will feature a Santa’s post office façade and children are invited to post their Christmas wish lists and letters to Santa. All letters received before 17 December will receive a reply.
This year the Royal Arcade has been transformed into a stunning wonderland full of glittering Christmas trees and garlands of letters hanging from the decorative Art Noveau ceiling.
Festivities in the Royal Arcade get under way on Friday 1 December at 4.30pm with music and entertainment from A Christmas Carol the Musical by Planet Productions. There will be an olde world Dickensian feel to the scene featuring the Christmas Carol cart straight from the set whilst Scrooge himself will be on hand to entertain with a rendition from the show about the meaning of Christmas. There will be a performance of Hear the Bells by the cast followed by humbugs and candy canes for all!
To receive a special free response from Santa Claus, children simply need to bring their letter (including return address) along to the Royal Arcade and post it into Santa’s post box (the old Colman’s Mustard Shop) before 17 December.
Royal Arcade, Norwich NR2 1NQ
