Residents in Glasgow’s Battlefield have transformed their windows into an ‘outdoor art gallery.’
The ‘Window Wanderland’ event, which locals came up with as a way to bring the southside community together during the Covid pandemic, is now in its fourth year.
People living in the area are encouraged to decorate their windows using paper and paint, with some entire closes even co-ordinating their designs.
The theme for this year’s event is ‘love, peace and community’.
Vicki Colkett, one of the organisers, told STV News: “The idea is for people to decorate their windows as elaborately or as simply as they like, and light them up from 6pm till 9pm.
“Anybody can come and look, it’s a very family-friendly event, and the idea is really to make it a magical outdoor gallery for the community to enjoy.
“It’s great fun and going around to see it lift the spirits.”
The first event was held in October 2020 and was designed as a Covid-friendly activity for the local area.
“It was a huge hit, really popular,” Vicki added.
Co-organiser Suzie McCheyne said visitors come from across the city and surrounding areas to see the display.
She said: “The creative side of it is good for mental wellbeing and relaxing.We love it.
“It’s a free event to get everyone involved, lift some spirits and have a good time.
“It’s an inclusive event for everyone to join in. It brings the community closer together.”
Battlefield Window Wanderland runs from February 11-14.
