Birr, Offaly 2021

Birr town centre and surrounding streets

Took place on 14‑20 Aug 2021

This event has already taken place.

 Welcome to Birr Window Wanderland – The Spirit of Vintage!

We are delighted to be bringing this fantastic event to Birr again and with your help, we will transform the streets into a magical outdoor gallery for all to enjoy! This year we are asking you to reflect the SPIRIT OF VINTAGE  in your windows, houses , gardens – anything goes – as long as it’s family friendly!

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 turn your house into a carnival float!   

Window Wanderlands have been held around the world, and 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 your front garden!

If you would like to host a window maker but don’t have time to do it yourself, email birrwindows@gmail.com with your address and window dimensions.

If you would like materials, email the window dimensions and I can leave a pack in at Kelly’s for collection – tissue paper, black paper and tracing paper. You don’t have to go with these materials – anything goes
