New for Winter 2020-21- Winter Window Wanderland!

Introducing a brand new socially distanced experience, Sydenham Arts Winter Window Wanderland invites Sydenham residents to brighten up the streets with creative window displays this winter!


A Window Wanderland is the perfect community activity – Covid-friendly with no worries about being in a crowd – and of course, it’s completely FREE, both to participate and to enjoy as an audience.

What is it?

Window Wanderland invites communities to decorate their own front windows, that come alive once the night draws in. Lit from the light in your houses each evening, this is your chance to get creative and decorate your window with a scene which magically lights up.

There will be a whole host of houses lighting up the streets, and your address will be included on our map so people can come by and admire your hard work from the pavements of Sydenham.

Our theme is simple- “Winter”, to reflect the time of year. But don’t let that restrict your creativity! Whatever colourful and imaginative ideas you have are most welcome. We expect there will be lots of festive windows and lockdown themes but let your imagination run wild. It could be a perfect project for the remainder of lockdown and children and adults alike will love seeing their designs up lit up in your windows.

Don’t feel this is limited to your windows. You may decorate your gardens, balconies or stairwells too so long as it’s all visible from the pavement – window wanderers won’t enter your gardens or personal space.

When is it?

Sydenham Arts Winter Window Wanderland will be three weeks long from 12th December – 5th January 2021. You are welcome to join in or take down at any time but we would love you to participate for the whole time so no window wanderers are disappointed missing your magical display.

How to get involved?

It’s really simple to join in- just head over to our Wanderland site and sign up to participate!
