What's the theme in my area?
The residents themselves decide the theme for their street or neighbourhood. It's optional, however, and most areas don't have a theme. If there is no information about themes on your area's Window Wanderland webpage, that means one hasn't been decided, so you can do your own thing.
Can I post leaflets and materials to my neighbours?
Unfortunately, in line with lockdown restrictions, we can’t encourage you to post leaflets to your neighbours. Please consider getting in touch with neighbours you know over the phone, asking to feature in a local email newsletter, or reaching out to local community groups on Facebook. You can read more about Covid safety below.
How can I spread the word?
Use our online resource pack which contains printable posters, social media assets and photographs.
I'm unable to buy the materials for my display.
That's okay, window displays can be made from anything you can find around the house: for example, newspaper, cereal boxes, fairy lights or cuddly toys. Come along to one of our workshops (more information above) for some top tips on how to use materials you have to hand.
My street isn't covered by the map.
If your area isn't registered, you're still welcome to take part. We'd love to see photos of your display on social media. If you live near an area that is registered, you can still add your display to their map. The more the merrier!
What is Window Wanderland?
Window Wanderland started in Bristol in 2015 and now takes place all over the world. Residents make a display for their window or garden forming a walking trail for a winter’s evening. Visit the Window Wanderland website to find out more.
