Coventry's popular Window Wanderland to return bigger and better than ever

Coventry Editorial 17th Feb, 2022   0

THE CREATIVE Window Wanderland project which proved so popular last year when the UK City of Culture Year got under way is returning to Coventry this weekend.

Front windows and gardens will be lit up to create night-time walking trails as part of the art project and this year three new locations have been added.

More than 2,000 Coventry and Warwickshire windows were transformed last year and organisers have set their sights on topping that number after expanding it to cover streets in Willenhall, Flecknoe and Attleborough.

Between Saturday and March 25, each of the 14 participating areas will decorate their windows for two weeks – a trail map will guide participants to other creations within their area. Schools, homes and businesses are all being urged to take part and register their address on the Window Wanderland map.




Displays can be created using household items, such as newspapers, cereal boxes, fairy lights or cuddly toys to cut down on single use materials where possible.

Participants can also get neighbours involved by downloading posters and leaflets or picking them up at the City of Culture Shop on Hertford Street.


This project is part of #LoveCoventry, a Coventry UK City of Culture programme supported by The National Lottery Community Fund.

From tomorrow to March 4, the Window Wanderland trail will start in Earlsdon and Whoberley and from February 26 to March 11 there will be trails in Stivichall, Cheylesmore, Whitley and Finham, Stoke, Binley and Willenhall, Foleshill, Hillfields and Longford Attleborough.

March 5 to March 18 sees the spotlight shine on Coundon, Radford and Holbrooks Walsgrave, Wood End and Wyken Warwick Gates and Whitnash, Kenilworth.

And from March 12 to 25, the trail will take walkers to Canley and Westwood Heath, Tile Hill, Eastern Green, Allesley Village, Rugby, Bronwsover and Newton Flecknoe.
