The Nutcracker Christmas Trail

The Nutcracker Christmas Trail

Southport

Wednesday 20th November 2019 to Thursday 2nd January 2020

Can you find the 10 Nutcracker Kings who have appeared all over Southport?

According to German folklore, traditional Christmas nutcrackers were given as keepsakes to bring good luck to the family. This magical story is a beautiful part of Christmas and these six foot statues will be bringing their charm to the town centre.

Explore Southport this Christmas as you hunt for each statue.  Collect forms from either Wayfarers Shopping Arcade, The Atkinson or Remedy. Complete the trail and find the names of all ten Nutcrackers and you can be in with a chance of winning an iPad mini!  Find Santa's post box in Wayfarers Shopping Arcade at the end of the trail and drop your completed form in - a winner will be drawn in January.
