BS9 Window Wanderland
2 BS9 Window Wanderland
Time: 12 Mar, 18:00 – 15 Mar, 21:00 | Location: BS9, Bristol
Window Wanderland is a fun, free community event taking place across BS9 from 12-15 March (originally due to take place 5-8 February). Local residents, schools and businesses are encouraged to create window displays, which will then form a walking trail. The idea is “about celebrating our communities, getting people walking around our neighbourhoods and lighting up our streets”, says the organiser.
While this is being organised for BS9, any community can do this – just gather support through your local FB community group. It really helps engender a sense of community and is great for children – as well as adults – and can be educational. My son and I did the tree walk where I live (where you have to find the name of the tree which is written on a wooden disc) and we ended up walking twice as far as intended!
Remember to encourage your friends and neighbours to sign up, too. Share on your community and neighbourhood social media groups – and keep us posted!

Now world-renowned, why not go and explore his work across Bristol by foot or bike – you can see as much or as little as you like in one day.
