Corstorphine Window Wanderland 2021

Corstorphine Town Centre and Surrounds, Edinburgh

27‑28 Feb 2021
6pm - 9pm

Please register or sign in to make a window.

Please join us for the first official Corstorphine Window Wanderland!  We will be brightening up the last weekend of February by transforming the streets into a magical outdoor gallery for all to enjoy.

Window Wanderland is a free event and everyone is invited to take part – residents, schools, community groups and businesses. Supported by Corstorphine Community Council and the Corstorphine Trust, with in-kind sponsorship from Lou.kin Art, we hope the whole community will get involved with decorating windows or wandering, or both!

Whether you’re a maker or a wanderer, this must be a Covid-safe event. Please make sure you stay safe and follow the latest Covid-19 rules and advice

Fancy joining in?

Taking part is completely free, you just need to register your window so that people know you are part of the trail and will come to see your display on the nights of 27th and 28th February 2021

You can make a display in the windows of your home, school, nursery, shop, business, car, or in your front garden. Your display could be as simple as a cut-out shape, some colourful tissue paper, fairy-lights or a Lego scene. Anything goes… as long as it’s family friendly.

Closer to the time, you will be able to view an online map showing all the windows taking part.  We have set an indicative boundary area to help keep the main event zone walkable, but please feel free to join in even if your street is not in the main area.

Ready to sign up?

  • Click on ‘Take part in this event’ to add your location to our map.
  • You’ll get a ‘Welcome Pack’ when you sign in and access to lots of inspiration for your windows.
  • Tell your friends and neighbours and ask them to join in too.

Where can I get materials?

We want to be as environmentally friendly as possible – please think about what you could repurpose to create your design rather than buying new. Cardboard from cereal boxes, wrapping paper, packaging and tissue paper from gifts can all be repurposed to good effect.  

We will have supplies of black paper, tracing paper, tissue and various other items that you might need available at cost price from early February. Thanks to the Corstorphine Trust, we will also have a small number of art packs available free of charge for those who otherwise would not be able to take part – please contact us to find out more.
