This February a brand new FREE event is coming to the streets of Bishopston. Residents are being invited to make a Window Wanderland by creating a display in their windows and gardens on Saturday 7th February between 5 – 8pm. This will create a night walk where everyone can wrap up warm and go and see North Bristol in a whole new light.
Lucy Reeves, creator and organiser of Window Wanderland explains:
“We are getting a very positive response for the Wanderland! We have had many ideas including camper vans in Brynland Avenue, making a land of sweets in Kings Drive and hanging 1000 origami cranes in Burghley Road!”
“Who knows what you’ll see on Saturday 7th February. Over 75 venues have signed up and there still time to sign up before the end of January, see the map on windowwanderland.com and help us join the dots to make a trail!”
To add to the fun, all Window Wanderers will have the chance to vote in 4 categories: Funniest Display, Most Beautiful Display, Best Street, and The Room You’d Most Like to Be In.
Prizes have been kindly donated by Gloucester Road businesses, such as dinner for two at Boston Tea Party and a voucher from Dave Giles Butchers. Even community groups and schools are getting involved: Friends of Horfield Common will be decorating the Ardagh and Ashley Down School are hoping to transform Tortworth Road.
