Welcome to The Islands of Barrow Wanderland!

BarrowFull are delighted to be bringing this fantastic festival to The Islands of Barrow (Barrow Island and Walney), and with your help, we will transform the streets into a magical outdoor gallery for all to enjoy!

Window Wanderlands have been held around the world, and here are some links if you want to know more:

Fancy taking part?

Taking part as a Windowmaker is FREE, and everyone’s welcome. You can make a display in the windows of your flat, house, business, school, nursery, car, campervan, shop – or your front garden!

Please don’t feel intimidated. Your display could be as simple as a candle, book or fairy-lights in a window. Or you could go all out and stage a performance in your front room!  Anything goes… as long as it’s family-friendly!
