Previous displays have included Oliver Twist, Alice in Wonderland and last year, it was Beatrix Potter.

Northumbria Police have confirmed they will deploy armed officers at events throughout the festive period, including the Fenwick window display.

We want the public to be reassured that our officers will be on patrol throughout these types of events to ensure public safety and make sure everyone can enjoy themselves.

"This is not in relation to any specific threat, but is in line with the current national threat level of 'Severe'."
