This year’s Window follows the tale of Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy as they discover the land of Narnia as they go through the wardrobe.
It can now be seen on Newcastle city centre’s Northumberland Street and will be available to view throughout the Christmas season for 2023.
The Window features classic scenes from the C. S. Lewis novel, including Edmund eating Turkish delight and Aslan taking back Narnia from the White Witch.
Santa Claus himself is also featured as he delivered presents to the children once the White Witch’s magic for it “always to be winter, but never Christmas” started to fade.
