Window Wanderland 2020

Project

We are delighted to be bringing this fantastic event back to Frome for a third year in 2020 and with your help we will transform the streets into a magical outdoor gallery again for all to enjoy!

Window Wanderland is a fun community event that everyone can join In. It is completely free to attend and there are no fees to participate. People are invited to create a display in their windows, and then light it up between 5.30 and 9.00pm for three evenings over a weekend at the end of February. You can make a display in the windows of your flat, house, business, school, nursery, car, campervan, shop – or in your front garden! There is no competition, and no rules, your display could be as simple as a candle, book or fairy-lights in a window. Or you could go all out and stage a performance in your front room!  Anything goes… as long as it’s family friendly! Window Makers register for free on our website, and we produce a free map with road listings to show where every display can be found.

By enabling Frome neighbourhoods to make their own event, we aim to encourage those who may feel isolated in their communities to participate, so that everyone can join in the fun.

Frome Window Wanderland 2019 was funded thanks to the People’s Budget, and gave us the opportunity to run more workshops in schools and in the community. In 2020 we would like to focus more on reaching community groups and bringing people together, to learn, make friends and hopefully have a lot of fun, creating window displays!
