York Nutcracker Trail

Celebrate the winter season with the memorable York Nutcracker Trail. York BID has partnered with local charities, schools and artist Sian Ellis to bring you 10 bespoke nutcracker statues, dotted around the city.

Pick up your Nutcracker Trail map from the Visit York Information Centre and find the names of all 10 nutcrackers for your chance to win a £250 York Gift Card. Once you're finished, submit your entry at the Visit York Information Centre or pop it into Santa's post box at Museum Gardens. What's more, if you tell us the link between all of the nutcracker names, you could win your own miniature nutcracker! (Ts & Cs on physical Nutcracker Trail leaflet).
