Date set for next Window Wanderland MANY local folk will recall the spectacularly dressed window displays that lit up Bishopston’s streets on a cold winter’s day in February. Two-hundred residents took part in the Window Wanderland trail, which was conceived by local film and TV set designer Lucy Reeves, with over 2,500 attending the event. Now, following its success, the mum-of-two has set a date for next year – the weekend of February 20. The trail has already started generating interest, with many signing up to take part at the recent Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Neighbourhood Partnership. Lucy, who came up with the idea to raise spirits in the darkest part of the year, said: “I was delighted by the way this

neighbourhood embraced my idea as this is a true ‘made by the community for the community’ event. “I have a great team of volunteers to help make 2016 happen but there are lots of ways local people and businesses can get involved in small ways. Please get in contact if you would like to sign up to make a display or help out.” Lucy added: “I would love this to become a regular fixture in the North Bristol calendar, as it is a joyful event, full of fun and wonder that the whole family can participate in and enjoy.” If you would like to sign up or contribute to Window Wanderland 2016, visit: or email 2015 Window Wanderland stats:
