Royal Mail brings Christmas cheer with singing postboxes

The sound of sleigh bells or a jolly message from Father Christmas will greet anyone sending mail at the special postboxes in the coming weeks.

Four of them are being launched, in Edinburgh, London, Cardiff, and Belfast, installed with sensors which spark the messages. Simon Barker, operations director at Royal Mail, said: Delivering Christmas is our absolute priority this December.

Royal Mail is installing postboxes across the UK that will play traditional Christmas tunes when letters and cards are posted inside.

The singing postbox on Queen Street is one of four singing festive postboxes being launched across the UK.

They will be decorated with snowflakes and equipped with sensors that are triggered when post drops inside, playing the sound of sleigh bells or a message from Father Christmas.

Four of them are being launched, in both the capital as well as Cardiff, Belfast and Edinburgh, installed with sensors which spark the messages.

Launching this week, the postboxes will be in place throughout December. They will be located in Greenwich in London, Queen Street in Cardiff, Wellington Place in Belfast and High Street in Edinburgh.

The activation is being managed in-house, with TN Project Management assisting with the installation.
