Northumberland Street - Fenwick's Department Store

John James Fenwick was born in Richmond, North Yorkshire, in 1846. In 1882 Fenwick bought and renovated a doctor's house for £181 and 4 shillings at 5 Northumberland Street. This would become his first store and the start of his legacy: JJ Fenwick, Mantle Maker and Furrier.

He sold an unparalleled range of mantles, silk goods, dresses, fabrics and trimmings. The store became popular, and soon he expanded his space by purchasing 37, 38 and 40 Northumberland Street.

In 1971 Fenwick Newcastle debuts its first animated Christmas window display. The now-yearly lavish and imaginative Christmas installations have since attracted millions of visitors and are a highlight of the city’s events calendar. The very first theme was Camberwick Green, bringing to life a favourite children’s television show at the time.
