 Welcome to Birr Window Wanderland

 We cannot have a full  Birr Vintage Week Festival this year but this was a huge success last year and is a safe, community event  and with your help we will transform the streets into a magical outdoor gallery for all to enjoy!

 We will run the event for the week of 14th-21st August, from dusk to dark

Window Wanderlands have been held around the world , but we are the first and only Irish Wanderland  .Here are some links if you want to know more:

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, nursery, car, campervan, shop – or in your front garden!

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!
