In pictures: Fenwick unveils Newcastle Christmas window to 250,000 online

Fenwick Christmas 2020

More than 250,000 viewers streamed the unveiling of Fenwick’s Christmas window at its Newcastle flagship.

Fenwick revealed its flagship Christmas window, inspired by the classic children’s book The Wind In The Willows, on Sunday evening. 

The annual unveil has been a staple in Newcastle’s retail diary for 50 years and typically attracts approximately 2,000 shoppers to Northumberland Street.

But, due to the pandemic, this year the department store cordoned off the area and asked people not to attend, instead streaming the reveal on Facebook Live so shoppers could watch from home safely.
