Get ready for Window Wanderland, 5 – 7 March, 6–9pm

It is so exciting that Bishopston Window Wanderland is just around the corner to brighten up our community once again. And if you are new to the area prepare to be dazzled – everyone can take part, and anything goes, as long as it’s family-friendly.

The idea is to bring light, colour and stories to our windows, gardens and streets for us all to share and enjoy over the event weekend – or for longer. Get the whole family involved or create a solo piece, use one window or all of them. Or join up with others in your street to collaborate around a theme. What you do is entirely up to you.

By the beginning of February there were already 70 display maker sign ups but organisers are hoping to beat last year’s record of over 300 windows, so please don’t be shy. It’s easy to put your house on the downloadable map if you want to make a display, and please make sure you do so everyone can see your hard work. Just visit the event page and sign up:

You can add your house any time so even if you don’t decide to do it until the last minute you can still put yourself on the map. And, if you like, leave your displays up for days or weeks after the event – that way more people can appreciate your creativity and wanders can be spread out to avoid crowds.

The event relies on local press; social media and most importantly word of mouth to spread the word about this fabulous event so please tell your friends and neighbours and share on any social media groups for your street. Last year there were several roads where 10 or more residents in the street made displays. It would be lovely to see more neighbours coming together to brighten their street for the event as they have done for advent calendars during the festive season.

When the weekend comes wrap up warm, put on boots made for walking and tramp our local streets with the downloadable map as your guide to the windows. Or come out in totally unsuitable clothing wearing your dancing shoes and wander aimlessly. Whatever you choose, you will be sure to enjoy Bishopston’s 8th Window Wanderland.
