Christmas shoppers in South Norfolk will have a little help getting into the spirit of things as they encounter a range of seasonal walkabout performers this year with support from the arts and community development charity Creative Arts East.

A collection of fun and festive characters will be making appearances in the market towns of Diss, Wymondham, Loddon and Harleston at Christmas light and shopping events in the coming weeks to spread some seasonal good cheer.

Meet ‘Tabitha the Victorian Ghost’ an endearing little servant girl, bustling around on her busy ghostly schedule, ’Knees Up Ebeneezer’ a huge snowman, dancing to your favourite Christmas tunes played by a cheerful Scrooge, ‘Betty Twinkle’, a dear old Victorian fairy riding her trusty Robin, the stunning white ‘Snow Queen’ with icicles that hang from her fingers and tinkle like glass, and a very ‘Cheeky Elf’ who has hitched a ride on poor Santa’s back to do his juggling and balloon tricks!

Just the thing to brighten up a Christmas shopping trip to add some extra sparkle to the ‘Most Wonderful Time of the Year’!
