Two Narnia themed trails will remain in Malvern after having their end dates extended until the New Year.

The Narnia Window Art Trail and the Gas Lamp Trail, launched on Saturday, November 25, were originally planned as a one week feature, but due to their popularity, the end date has been shifted to New Year's Day.

The trails were part of the Great Malvern Christmas Festival, marking the 125th birth anniversary of Chronicles of Narnia author, C. S. Lewis, who went to school in Malvern.

Creatives Connect Malvern, a group of artists from the area, created the Narnia Window Art Trail.

Artists have hand-painted 40 shops and businesses windows with themes drawing inspiration from C.S. Lewis's works.

The Gas Lamp Trail, showcasing 13 restored Victorian gas lamps, passes through landmarks resonant with C.S. Lewis, including a Mr Tumnus bench and a plinth.

Maps for exploring these trails can be collected from the Great Malvern Tourist Information Office.

Cllr Beverley Nielsen, portfolio holder for tourism and economic development at Malvern Hills District Council, said: "We are so pleased that these two wonderful trails have been extended for all to enjoy.

"We encourage people to go out and explore the trails over the festive period, whilst also supporting our local businesses along the way."
