Fenwick Christmas Window: All you need to know for the big reveal

The big reveal will take place this Sunday, but it’s a bit different this year.

Christmas will officially arrive in Newcastle on Sunday night when Fenwick unveil their Christmas Window 2021.

The department store has delivered some belters in recent years, from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to Wind in the Willows and The Snowman to Paddington Bear.

Could it be another children's classic again this year? Or will it be a bolt from the blue to keep us on our toes?

We don't have to wait much longer as we edge ever close to 7:30 pm on Sunday, November 7.

NewcastleWorld.com has all you need to know ahead of the reveal.

When is the reveal?

The Fenwick Christmas Window 2021 will be revealed on Sunday, November 7.

The long wait to find out the theme will come to an end when the event starts at 7:30 pm.

Can I go to the reveal?

No, this year you won't be able to see the Fenwick Christmas Window reveal in person.

Usually the store throws a remarkable festive event with queues across Northumberland Street to get a first peek at the display.

However, after consultation with the council, this year's event will happen virtually.

When can I go see the Fenwick Christmas Window?

Even though you can't go along on Sunday evening, it won't be long until you can nosey at the window in person.

From Monday, November 6 the window will be open to the public on Northumberland street, just as it has been in previous years.

What is the 2021 theme?

The 2021 theme is still being kept under wraps.

It seems almost certain that it will be inspired by a children's book or tale, as in previous years, but it could be anything.

What has the store said about the launch?

A statement from the store read: "Keeping the community safe and avoiding overcrowding remains a top priority.

"Fenwick has worked with Newcastle City Council to ensure it can keep the reveal as safe as possible.

"This year’s reveal will only be viewable via the Facebook live stream allowing friends, families and their loved ones to experience it from all over the world.

"On the evening of the reveal, the public are kindly asked not to travel to Northumberland Street to watch the reveal in person.

"A section of Northumberland Street will be closed to the public, making the window and surrounding area not viewable."
