Window Wanderland is a magical community event where residents front windows become an outdoor art gallery bringing together neighbours in a mid-winter celebration.
Backed by the Arts Council Window Wanderland is inviting communities in Knutsford to join in this project that brings everybody together through art and creativity.
Window Wanderland started in a Bristol suburb in 2015 and has now taken place everywhere from tower blocks to villages.
Featured on The One Show and in The Sunday Times Wanderland has gone international with neighbourhoods in Australia and Canada lighting up their windows in vibrant displays.
Founder Lucy Reeves Khan said: “Window Wonderland can capture the heart of the community. Its creativity is unique, impactful and collaborative.”
Last year more than 900 windows were lit up during Window Wanderland events, bringing tens of thousands of people to the streets of both urban and rural communities, brightening dark winter’s evenings.
From Jurassic Park to Game of Thrones, from humorous to artistic, the window displays can be fun, interactive and inspirational.
