The countdown is on for Hereford’s Christmas Nutcracker Trail

This festive season, Hereford City Life are launching an exciting seasonal trail that will see twelve impressive Nutcracker statues making the city centre their home.

Designed with families in mind, this trail lets you explore at your own pace, with plenty of opportunities to take advantage of Hereford’s fantastic cafes, restaurants and shops along the way. Each Nutcracker has a unique festive name and your goal is to follow the trail map, find the nutcrackers and learn all twelve names!

Once the trail is complete, families can head to Hereford Tourist Information Centre to collect a special Christmas prize. For an extra festive treat, you also have the opportunity to win a £50 Hereford Gift Card by entering a prize draw.

Not only will the trail provide a fun, free activity to enjoy during the winter months, but these colourful characters are guaranteed to bring extra Christmas cheer to the city’s streets. The trail marks the start of our showstopper schedule of Christmas events and we are extremely excited to see everyone in Hereford enjoying themselves.
