Window Wanderland is returning to Southfields for it’s 5th year!
2020 was a challenging year for us all but our windows played a huge part in bringing us together during a global pandemic. Who can forget the heart-warming rainbows, bears, paintings and words of encouragement that popped up in windows all around the community. Those windows made us smile, made us feel less alone, made us feel connected.
With your help our aim is to transform our streets into a magical outdoor gallery for all to see. Taking part is FREE and everyone in the community is welcome. You can make a display in the windows of your flat, house, business, school, nursery, car, campervan, shop – or in your front garden! “But I’m not creative” we hear you say. Well, you don’t have to be. Your display could be something as simple as fairy lights in the window, a candle, balloons, your favourite book or dress, your dog! – or simply just open your curtains and show us your lovely interiors. Alternatively you can go all out and stage a performance in your front room, host karaoke in your front garden, open a sweet shop – or project something onto your building. Simple or spectacular, it’s completely up to you. Every window is special. This is a family event so please bear this in mind when creating your displays.
What to do next:

- You’ll get a ‘Welcome Pack’ when you sign in with access to lots of inspiration for windows.
- Tell your friends and neighbours (especially those who are elderly and don’t use Social Media) and ask them to get involved or help them decorate their windows.
If you have any questions please contact us via ‘Contact Organiser’ here or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like to volunteer to help or become a street rep please shout. I’m a local mum running this solo in my spare time and any help is much appreciated. Thanks!
Spread the word, decorate your windows and be part of something truly magical. Window Wanderland Southfields is proudly sponsored by The Magpie Tree and the SGRA (without whom I couldn’t run this event and their sponsorship means so much). Please sign up by Saturday, 20th February to appear on the printed map.
*Window Wanderland is a Covid-friendly event. Please adhere to social distancing rules when wandering and stick to your family bubbles only*
Southfields ……… let’s shine bigger and brighter as a community in February (goodness knows we all need things that make us smile, now more than ever).
