Window Wanderland
1 ‑ 3 March, 5.30 – 9pm
In windows around Frome

A wonderful collaborative community event in aid of ‘Lifting people’s spirits. And warding off feelings of isolation.’ Funded by the Frome People’s Budget.

Set designer, Lucy Reeves Khan started Window Wanderland in 2015, inspired by her vivid imagination, her deep-seated community spirit and her personal experiences of isolation due to years of chronic illness.

Lucy imagined her local streets alive with other people viewing dramatic, beautiful or just silly scenes in the windows around her neighbourhood. She wondered if, in the dark of winter, these displays would cheer up others too. She put on her first event in her own community. It was a huge success. Other areas wanted to join in, and the rest, as they say, is history…

Black Swan Café will be open late throughout and printed maps will be available to take away.
