Winter Festival


Current circumstances prevent us from having our usual Lantern Parade. Instead, we will be hosting Devizes Winter Festival focussing on an installation trail, market stalls and Window Wanderland.

This weekend is traditionally Devizes Lantern Parade a huge magical community event, this year because of circumstances beyond our control we are doing things a little differently.

We would like to invite our local community to take part in Window Wanderland, a COVID-safe way to connect people. Transforming streets into magical outdoor galleries and giving the local community a chance to show the wonderful creativity that we love so much about Devizes.

Anyone with a window can take part. You’d need to create a display which will become part of our programme of events. Over the weekend participants will follow the trail of windows into Devizes Town Centre where you’ll find a warm welcome to our Seasonal Market (both indoors and out). Traders will be selling beautiful artisan gifts and delicious food and drink. There will also be light shows, walkabout performers and plenty of smiles all round (even under face masks where appropriate). As we approach the weekend we will release more information on entertainment, and which businesses will be trading at the market

We can’t wait for you to join us for a kick-start to the festive season that will look a little different to usual, but we are hoping that it’ll be all the more memorable.
