Welcome to Govan Christmas Window Wanderland!
Christmas 2020 is going to be very different from any we’ve ever known; Govan Loves Christmas with its fireworks, rides, live music and more cannot happen under the current restrictions. But that doesn’t mean nothing is happening!
We want to build on the success of February’ s amazing Window Wanderland event and create a magical Christmas Window trail around Govan on Wednesday 9th of December. Alongside this, a lights show will project fireworks on a loop onto Govan Old Church and Govan & Linthouse Parish Church. The central Govan Christmas tree will also be lit on the night.
All residents, local businesses, local community groups, organisations and schools and nurseries are invited to make a fun/simple window display themed on ‘Christmas in Govan’.
Brightly coloured tissue paper and shadow designs on black paper can be attached to windows with translucent paper backing. The paper takes on a magical feel when illuminated by inside lights. 3d displays can also be lit with fairy lights or lamps.
We will be running online workshops and posting videos to help guide and inspire your windows.
We’ll also have craft pack collection points for all families to safely collect materials and get involved.
What to do next:

You’ll get a ‘Welcome Pack’ when you sign in and access to lots of inspiration for windows too.
Tell your friends and neighbours and ask them to get involved!
