Corstorphine Window Wanderland – a first!

27th to 28th February 2021

6pm to 9pm

An outdoor event that we hope will provide some much-needed joy as the winter comes to a close. 

Everyone in the area around Corstorphine town centre is being invited to transform their windows into a magical outdoor gallery between 6pm and 9pm on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th February.

We would love you to consider becoming part of the Window Wanderland trail by registering to create a display!

Taking part is free and you can use your windows/garden to do anything you want. It doesn’t have to be complicated and there are loads of ideas to be found on the Window Wanderland website.

It might just be a good excuse to get some fairy lights out.  

Check out the website: www.windowwanderland.com/event/corstorphine-2021/

 

If you’ve got any questions about the event, you can send an email via the website to the organiser.
