Welcome to Talaton’s Window Wanderland 2020


Talaton Parish Council are delighted to bring this fantastic event to our community. With your help, we are transforming our village into a magical outdoor gallery each evening, for all the community to enjoy.

We’re creating a fun, friendly, Covid-safe event this winter, and we need you to help us make it happen!

Let’s light up Talaton!


Sounds great! How do I take part?

All you have to do is decorate a window in Talaton, and add it to the free, interactive map of all the displays, which can be downloaded and shared. Then wrap up warm and take a magical walk around Talaton’s Window Wanderland.

Taking part as a Windowmaker is FREE and everyone is welcome to have a go. You can make a display in the windows of your house, business, pub, car, shop – or especially your front garden!

Your display could be as simple as a candle, nativity, book or fairy-lights in a window, or you could go all out and decorate the whole house (like many have)!  Anything goes… as long as it’s family friendly!
