Please register or sign in to make a window.

Come and have A RYE GOOD TIME at A RYE GOOD WINDOW WANDERLAND

To conjure light from winter’s darkness, this is going to be an illuminated, magical, whole-town walking trail, to be explored and enjoyed by the whole of the community and the visitors to Rye. Together, we’ll illuminate Rye to herald the arrival of Spring. Think growth, new beginnings, seeds of hope, change and the tree of life.

WHAT IS IT?

A Rye Good Window Wanderland is an uplifting, creative, family-friendly, positive 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 Rye’s streets into dazzling galleries and the beauty of the town’s unique community spirit will be showcased and ablaze for all to see.

Live performances and music will also bring brightness to the streets over the weekend and many shops will stay open late until 8pm on Saturday 25 March, so a wonderful opportunity to pick up some delightful independent purchases. 

WHEN IS IT?

A Rye Good Window Wanderland will spring into life during the evenings of Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 March 2023 between the hours of 6pm – 9pm.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

Let’s set Rye alight together.  A Rye Good Window Wanderland is a free event and everyone in Rye is welcome to be part of the trail. 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.
