The Nutcracker Christmas Trail

Monday October 10, 2022

The whole family will love getting involved in the Cheltenham Nutcracker Trail and will discover some interesting facts about Cheltenham along the way, whilst exploring the beautiful areas of our town.

Nutcrackers may actually look a little scary but according to German folklore, they represent power and strength, bare their teeth to evil spirits and serve as the traditional messenger of good luck and goodwill.

Find your free Nutcracker Trail map in town or view it online and then wander around the town to find 10 Nutcracker Kings. The map tells you the location of the Kings and as you find each one, write their name down on the Trail Sheet. Once you’ve found all of the names, fill in your details and post it into Santa’s postbox, which is also marked on the map. First prize is a £100 Cheltenham Gift Card.

The Nutcracker Kings will be available to find in their various locations from Saturday 19th November. The competition will close on Friday 30th December.  The winner will be announced via the Cheltenham BID website, on Cheltenham BID social media channels and via email on Tuesday 3rd January 2023.
