The nutcracker soldiers are standing guard within Putney from now until the 2nd January. Everyone is invited to find the five nutcracker soldiers hiding within Putney businesses. We have a mixture of vintage and modern giant nutcracker figures. One even plays Christmas tunes too! They are spread out throughout the town centre so hunt far and wide.
Take your photo alongside the nutcrackers and share on social media with us to be entered to win a Christmas hamper. The prize winner will be drawn on Wednesday 15th December so the wonderful Putney produce can be enjoyed over the Christmas period.
Many of our shops are selling nutcracker soldiers as Christmas decorations, and Waterstones sells a beautiful musical copy of the Nutcracker book. We would love to see your photos of these also if you buy them.
Whilst on your visit of Putney check out the snowwindows Nutcracker interpretation. This incredible piece of art took about 4 hours to complete.
On Saturday 4th December as part of the Upper Richmond Road Christmas Fayre we will have a mini nutcracker trail with 8 pictures of soldiers displayed in business windows. Collect the trail card from the Positively Putney stand alongside the Fox and Hounds pub, or from one of the participating businesses and collect a stamp from the 8 businesses. A completed card can redeem a festive treat.
Terms and conditions: By entering the competition you are providing consent for Positively Putney to share your photo. The winner will be announced on Wednesday 16th December. We will contact the winner via direct messenger on social media and arrange for delivery of the Putney hamper on the 16th or 17th December
Thank you to our five businesses who agreed to host the nutcrackers over this festive period.
