πŸŽ„ Levenshulme Community Christmas Windows πŸŽ„

Last year we trialled Levenshulme’s first Community Christmas Windows, it was great fun. It’s a lovely way to meet people, light up the dark evenings with some sparkle, get into the festive spirit, and eat a mince pie… or 7…πŸ₯§

It’s a living advent calendar. Each evening in the run up to Christmas a new window is revealed that has been decorated by lovely Levenshulme volunteers. Often the ‘switch on’ is accompanied by treats, mulled wine, music, and general festival cheer.

The windows are then lit up each evening until Christmas.

We’ll have a map so residents can trail the fairy lit delight (for free) over the festive period.

The glorious The Owl and the Coconut will provide crafting support & inspiration, but you dont have to be an artist to decorate your window. In fact, often bolder, simpler ideas have more impact as details are lost to the darkness. Last year some windows were made from entirely upcycled materials.

Some more windows from 2018’s trial. The third one is the window of The Owl and the Coconut (they’re pros!)

Local businesses can offer their windows, too. This was local estate agent Edward Mellor’s window, last year.

We are looking for window decorating volunteers! Message me with your preferred dates* if you are willing to host a window: jenrobrien@gmail.com

Or join our Facebook group

Some crafting kit will be provided. We need to have 24 windows by 19th November for the festive sparkle to go ahead🀞

If/when the 24 windows are booked we’ll share the map through here. Hard copies may also be available.

*some windows are already booked, please send me a few date preferences & I’ll do my best.

Thank you πŸŽ„
