Community event Window Wanderland is all set to light up the dark and wintery nights this February in both Bishopston and Redland.

Many local residents, shops and schools join in the fun, with wonderful displays of colourful and often witty art in their windows. The event, which takes place in the early evening, is an opportunity to get out and meet the local community whilst admiring all the different, imaginative windows on display.

Over 20 shops from the Gloucester Road Business Improvement District (GRBID) are taking part, as Anne-Louise Perez explained: “This year as part of the GRBID's commitment to encourage the local art scene, create a trail, engage with community and increase foot fall, we were delighted at the opportunity to be a sponsor for Window Wanderland 2018. 

“We are pleased that the traders on and around Gloucester Road are grabbing this opportunity so enthusiastically, and grateful to local schools, Glenfrome Primary, Ashley Down Primary, Sefton Park Primary and The Dolphin School – whose talented children will be helping to create wonderful designs for them using the theme of ‘Past & Present’.  

“So we invite you to come on down and find out the history of the shops you see today, and when you need to refresh, rest or eat, Bristol’s Indie District offers great choices for you, your friends and families.”

As well as a fabulous window display people are encouraged to check out the events at 48 Thornleigh Road where Keith Walker - owner of Dale the Dalek - will be auctioning off a number of prizes donated by local businesses for Children’s Hospice South West including a £30 Tesco voucher, a blender from Nailsea Electrical, a £20 voucher for Tinto Lounge, a meal for two at the Grace, £20 voucher for Pizzarova and £20 to spend at Murray's Butcher. Keith’s pea-sticks counting competition is on-going until the end of February.

Window Wanderland Redland takes place around the Chandos Road area on Saturday 3 Feb and Sunday 4 Feb from 6pm to 9pm. 

Bishopston Window Wanderland takes place from Saturday 24 to Monday 26 February from 5:30pm – 9pm.
