Families: be creative and online tips

Every day 
Interesting activities to get involved with as a family.

Wild Norwood 2020, Window Wanderland Winter Festival
Saturday 28 November to Saturday 12 December

A chance to be creative in your own home - plus an inspiring reason to walk round your neighbourhood. Its simple to take part - cut out some paper shapes, stick them on the inside of your front windows and leave your lights on to light up the silhouettes. Register your window on the the festival website - and use the same map to venture outside on a hunt for other window displays in your neighbourhood.
This is our second Norwood festival, and this year there will also be lots of other activities and events to take part in. Find out how here: www.norwoodforum.org/wild-norwood-2020
