Window Wanderland: Nature Is Our Neighbour Yatton and Congresbury 2024

Welcome to YACWAG’s third Window Wanderland! We are a local nature charity in Yatton and Congresbury and, with your help, we will transform the streets of Yatton and Congresbury into a magical outdoor gallery for all to enjoy! Taking part is free, thanks to grant aid from our parish councils, and everyone’s window display is welcome.

We will be holding workshops, with materials provided, on Saturday 6th January at Yatton Library and Congar’s Cafe. If you would like to attend one of these, please get in touch using the ‘Contact event organiser’ orange button within the event details page.
