Welcome to the 2024 Window Wanderland in our beautiful neighbourhood!

We’ll kick off on LEAP day – 29th February and run until Sunday night 3rd March.

THANK YOU to all who voted for our theme which for 2024 is…

… drum roll…

………..  ***   B    O   O    K    S  *** ……..

There is no end to what you might create:

  • a quote from your favourite author
  • recreation of a front cover in tissue paper
  • a cut out in cardboard silouette of your favourite character
  • a pile of your best ever books covered in fairy lights
  • a window dressed as a scene from a book

As Dr Suess said:

“‘You can find MAGIC wherever you look. Sit back, relax – all you need is a  BOOK!”

And what could be better than getting the whole family ready for World Book Day?

We’d love to hear what you’re planning, so do share your pics and ideas on social media and tag us #lightupclapton or email us by clicking the ‘organiser’ button. 

We’re planning to share ideas and making tips so don’t forget to follow us on FB, IG or X… @homertonclaptonwanderland – please do share and like.

Join in the fun! It’s *free and easy* .. if you haven’t taken part before these are your next steps:

  • Sign up for FREE above by clicking on ‘take part in this event’.. this will register your address as a place where the magic will happen.

  • Relive the wonder of previous years, or look for inspiration, in the gallery of windows – on the blue button above

  • Find more ideas on our socials or google making a tissue paper window

  • Ask your neighbours to sign up too – a block full or road full of decorated windows is a sight to see!

  • If you have a high rise window which is hard to see from the street, or no windows which face the street, please get in touch… *If you want to decorate a window we’ll find you a more visible window to decorate!*

Don’t be worried about what to make…
