Welcome to Aylsham Window Wanderland
2020 has been a challenging year for everyone and has led to a great deal of disappointment as events both public and personal have changed or often postponed.
Aylsham Town Council have been unable to host the usual programme of events which culminates in the Christmas Lights Switch On. Although there will be no event this year the lights will shine as brightly as ever thanks to a small but very dedicated band of volunteers.
However, the Town Council did not want to end the year without some form of entertainment and that is why this year (and if successful in future years) we are hoping to create a ‘Window Wanderland’. This will involve residents in two ways. Firstly, by creating pictures in your windows and secondly on a covid safe walk around the town looking at the displays created.
We are delighted to be bringing this fantastic event to Aylsham and with your help we will transform the streets into a magical outdoor gallery for all to enjoy! We are hoping that many of you will join in with us as the windows in the Town Hall will all be suitably decorated.
The event will take place between 6pm and 9pm from Friday December 11th – Monday December 14th.
Fancy taking part.
Taking part as a Windowmaker is FREE and everyone’s welcome. You can make a display in the windows of your flat, house, business, school, car, or shop
Please don’t feel intimidated. 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!
