Eastcott's Window Wanderland will again turn the streets of the Swindon neighbourhood into a colourful gallery open to all.

People are once more invited by organisers Eastcott Community Organisation to make colourful displays in the windows of their homes, workplaces, businesses, schools, nurseries and even vehicles.

Taking part as a Windowmaker is free and all are welcome to create displays which might be as simple as a candle or some lights or as complex as imagination allows.

The windows will be on display from Friday to Sunday, March 4 to 7.

Community organisation co-chair Lauren Wallis said: "Last year's Window Wanderland was a great success so we're delighted to be running the event again.

"It's a great way of bringing the community together, particularly in times like these, and everybody in Eastcott is welcome to take part.

"We're also very grateful to South Swindon Parish Council, whose kind sponsorship means we are able to offer materials to people who need them. We'll put details about this on the Eastcott Community Organisation Facebook page during February."

As with last year's event, participants can have their location marked on a printed map to be distributed before the big weekend.

Anybody wishing to have their display marked on this year's map should sign up to take part by Friday, 11 February.

Further information can be found at https://www.windowwanderland.com/event/eastcott-swindon-2022/ and the site will be updated with more details as soon as they are available.
