Window Wanderland: A walking trail to light up our streets
Friday 4th March – Sunday 6th March , 6:00pm – 9:00pm
“A Covid-safe way to connect people, transforming streets into
magical outdoor galleries”
“Last year, over 200 households, schools and businesses helped to create a magical outdoor gallery and lift our spirits during lockdown. This year, with your help, we want to make the event even bigger and better than before. Participating in Window Wanderland is completely free and everyone is welcome- all you need to do is make a window display. This year, our theme is “Spark Joy”. It’s up to you how you interpret the theme; what makes you glad to be alive? Your display can be as simple or complicated as you like and you can use anything you want, from tissue paper to fairy lights to household objects. Don’t feel intimidated- simple can be really effective.”
– Kathy O’Borne, volunteer organiser.

Emma Scott, from Dorchester Town Council says:
“The Town Council are thrilled to be supporting this event again. It was a real tonic visiting all the windows last year, and the variation and quality of the displays people put together was truly heart-warming. We really look forward to seeing how people interpret and share what brings them joy.”
Window Wanderland was created in 2015 in Bristol by Lucy Reeves, a Mum, artist and “nosy parker”
“Everyone has a playful side to them they just need an opportunity to show it. I wanted to make an event that everyone can participate in and do something different. This brightens up the long winter nights and gives everyone a great excuse to get outdoors. It is a proper community event and some roads had almost every house participating”
