This event has already taken place.
Come and have A RYE GOOD TIME at A RYE GOOD WINDOW WANDERLAND.
With the dark nights drawing in, this is going to be an illuminated, magical, whole-town walking trail, to be explored and enjoyed by the whole of the Rye community and the tourists to our town.
WHAT IS IT?
A Rye Good Window Wanderland is an uplifting, family-friendly event, mental health and well-being initiative where residents, businesses and groups throughout Rye will create a display for their window, door or garden forming an illuminated walking trail. These individual windows across the town will transform our streets into dazzling galleries and the beauty of Rye’s unique community spirit will be showcased and ablaze for all to see.
WHEN IS IT?
Rye’s first ever A Rye Good Window Wanderland will brighten the evenings of Saturday 12 & Sunday 13 December 2020 between the hours of 6pm – 9pm.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
It’s really easy to do. You can take part by either making a display or simply by coming out on the trail and seeing Rye in a whole new light. A Rye Good Window Wanderland is open to EVERYONE.
No matter how small or large your street facing window, door or garden, let’s brighten Rye, East Sussex with this unique and wonderful feel-good festival. Anyone can take part, regardless of age and almost anything can count as a display: from a string of fairy lights to a live band playing in your front room. As long as it is family friendly, anything goes! No fancy lights needed, just a normal room light or lamp will bring your display to life. There is no set theme, so let your creative juices shine.
Let’s set Rye alight together. We’ve all had such a surreal few months and many of Rye’s events and festivals have been cancelled. A Rye Good Window Wanderland is a way to bring our community together and bring light to the darkness in these times. No matter what is happening in the world, Wanderlands are self-contained and Covid-safe.
A Rye Good Window Wanderland is a free event and everyone in Rye is welcome to be part of the trail.
You can make a display in the window of your home, business, school, nursery, shop, car, campervan, boat, pub, front door or even your garden.
Your display can be as simple as a string of lights, an open book with a lamp, tissue and card silhouettes or you can totally push the limits and create an installation piece, live performance or living art. Set your imagination alight. See window ideas here:
All the displays are put on to a map for people to follow and local businesses, residents, groups and schools are encouraged to get involved. Once you’ve decided to take part, then simply register your display and this will create a map for the trail on Saturday 12 & Sunday 13 December from 6-9 pm.
