Christmas Paper Trail
This year we've teamed up with four Norfolk schools to create beautiful paper artwork inspired by our Christmas show The Steadfast Tin Soldier. Follow the paper trail around business windows throughout the Cathedral Quarter of Norwich. Each piece of artwork has a letter - collect all the letters to discover the secret phrase. Download your print at home map using the link below and follow the trail of paper artwork to our paper castles! TIP: If you print out your map double-sided and fold down the middle, you'll get a nice little booklet. If you don't have a printer, maps can be picked up at the Puppet Theatre or the Tourist Information Centre at the Forum. 16 November - 30 December Hand in your completed map at Norwich Puppet Theatre or the Forum Tourist Information Centre to be entered into a prize draw to win some special prizes, including free tickets to a Norwich Puppet Theatre show next year!
