Get involved and help us transform our streets in to a magical outdoor art gallery over the first weekend in December!
At the Saltash Chamber of Commerce we are really sad that we can’t run the Saltash Christmas Festival and Lantern Parade this year, but we’re excited to be introducing this new event that will build on the community spirit shown in Saltash during lockdown and bring the community together in a Covid-safe event.
What goes in to your window display is totally up to you: from a chorus of cheeky robins to a full Nativity scene, from simple to spectacular – as long as it’s family friendly, anything goes. You only need simple materials to create your display, like tissue paper and sugar paper. Saltash Scrapstore is putting together 100 free packages. Please contact them through their Facebook page to arrange a click-and-collect slot to pick up your kit. After you’ve registered as a Windowmaker you will get access to a whole gallery of ideas. Keep an eye out for the video tutorials created by local artist Jill that we’ll be posting on our Saltash Christmas Festival Facebook page.
Taking part, either as a Windowmaker or a Wanderer, is FREE. So register now to see your location, as well as others, displayed on our map. This will give you, your family, and your neighbours the chance to wander around on that first weekend in December and enjoy the enchanting window displays!
If you have any questions or would just like some help with templates and design ideas please feel free to contact us – we’ll try our best to help wherever possible.
Notes to Wanderers:
- Stay safe! Keep socially distanced, stay out of gardens, and take a torch.
- Keep warm! Dress up for the cold winter weather.
- Plan your route! Plan your route before you set off and ensure that others know where you will be.
- Have fun! Enjoy the windows, take pictures, and spend time with your loved ones – maybe pack a thermos of hot chocolate!
