Working with the Central Area Council, we are planning a Window Wanderland in the Kingstone Area. We will be running a series of events and workshops in the Autumn preparing for a special night of exploring the magical wonders created by people, exhibited in their windows, on the evening of Saturday the 23rd of November, 2019.
