A Covid-safe way to connect people, transforming streets into magical outdoor galleries.
Neston Window Wanderland is a beautiful and magical community display of window art, brightening up our streets and homes during the dark winter nights.
For the Window Wanderland, decorate your house, flat, window, gates, or caravan with lights. We'll be sharing videos with you to help you with ideas for your displays. You'll then be able to share your window creations with us and some will be uploaded to the site for people to see. We will also add street names so that families can then safely wander in their own time, to marvel at the Christmas creativity on show locally. Neston will also have its very own pin on the national Window Wanderland map
Zoom class will be held on Wednesday 18th November, 5-6pm.

CH64 Window Wonderland
This is an accessible community arts project for all ages to create a beautiful and uplifting trail of lit window displays throughout the town and neighborhoods.
Families, groups, shops, and businesses create their own window designs, to be lit and displayed to coincide with the Switch On event on 28th November 2020 in a mass celebration.
Window designs can be small & simple, or large & elaborate. They must be bright, well lit, and visible from the street and on the theme of togetherness and sharing at Christmas.
Make it simple or elaborate
Simple, easy to use, inexpensive
Easily, with a lamp or room light
●The best thing to use as a canvas is tracing paper
●Use coloured tissue paper for ‘colouring in’ your design - simple bold designs work best!
●Use sugar paper to block out the light in areas where you want to create silhouettes
●Create the display on any flat surface, like on a table, then hang it up - simple!
●Use dry glue, like Pritt stick straight onto the tracing paper to stick the tissue or sugar paper down
●Use clear tape to stick your creation to the window
●Use brightly coloured pens to work into your design on paper
Light it Up!
●The way you light your creation depends on what size it is and where you put it
●If it is small in relation to the window, place a small lamp behind it and frame with your curtains
●If it is large i.e. covers the whole window, simply turn on the light in the room
