Window Wanderland is returning to Portland in March 2019.

Over one spectacular weekend we are hoping as many residents, businesses, community orgaisations and schools as possible will take part in this free event and help transform our streets into an outdoor gallery for all to enjoy. Join in by decorating a window, front garden or anything else that can be lit up and seen from the street – anything goes as long as it is family friendly! It can be as simple as a string of fairy lights or as spectacular as a full scale performance, so why not let your imagination run riot? Help the Friends of b-side make Portland Window Wanderland even bigger and better than last year.

What to do next:

  • Click on ‘Take part in this event’ to add your location to our interactive map.
  • Check out the online ‘Welcome Pack’ that you’ll get when you sign in – it will give you access to lots of inspirational ideas for windows.
  • Tell your friends and neighbours and encourage them to get involved too.
  • Remember to keep checking back to see how the event spreads right across the Island.

If you have any questions, would like to sponsor, promote or volunteer to help with this event then please contact the Friends of b-side by clicking on Contact event organiser or via email – windowwanderlandportland@gmail.com

What else will be going on?

Last year we kicked off our Window Wanderland weekend with a lantern parade and despite the truly dreadful weather lots of people still ventured out, so we have decided to start things off the same way this year (with lanterns, but hopefully not the dreadful weather!). Join the Friends of b-side for a free Lantern Making Workshop on Sunday 17th March, 2-5pm, at St John’s Church Hall, Fortuneswell, DT5 1LR, then come along to the parade the following Friday and show off your creation!

We will also be holding a Love Your Windows drop in session at Outpost, 77 Fortuneswell on Saturday 16th February, 11am to 2pm. Pop along, get creative and meet the Friends of b-side.

We are extremely grateful to the following for the support they have given the Friends of b-side in making Portland Window Wanderland 2019 happen.

The Aqua Hotel, Castletown – for being our Main Sponsor (again!).

Quiddles CafĂ© Beach Bar – for being a Sponsor (again!).

Reverend Tim Gomm – for allowing us to use St John’s Church Hall for the Lantern Making Workshop.
