Window Wanderland is returning to Southfields for it’s SIXTH year in February 2022 (Sat 26th & Sun 27th Feb).
It’s been a tough 18 months but we’ve weathered the storm together and our community is only stronger because of it. Despite being gripped by yet another lockdown we managed to shine our biggest and brightest with 329 windows at our last event in February 2021. Quite an achievement during a global pandemic! If we can achieve that during a pandemic – then the sky is the limit this time round.
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:
- Click on the link https://www.windowwanderland.com/event/southfields-london-2022 – then click ‘Take part in this event’ to add your address to our map.
- 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 me via ‘Contact Organiser’ here or email: email@example.com. 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. Please also spread the word on your street WhatsApp groups and encourage as many people as possible to join in. Perhaps you have an older neighbour who’d like to join in but just isn’t able – maybe your children could decorate their windows for them. Plans afoot to run a fun workshop too (with tea & biccies) so any creatives out there – or simply anyone with some free time – who’d like to get involved do contact me. 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 Monday 21st February 2022 to appear on the printed map.
*Window Wanderland is a Covid-friendly event.
Southfields ……… let’s SHINE!
