Window Wanderland Cathedral Quarter Trail

February 24 @ 6:00 pm - March 19 @ 8:00 pm


Curious Spark is delighted to be bringing this fantastic event to the Cathedral Quarter in Norwich! With your help, we will transform the streets into a magical outdoor Elizabethan gallery for all to enjoy!

Fancy taking part?

You can walk our Cathedral Quarter trail from 24 February – 19 March, illuminated from 6 – 8pm every night (scroll down to see the map). Or, if you live or work in Cathedral Quarter, you can create your own window and drop your location onto our online interactive map! Taking part as a Windowmaker is FREE, and everyone’s welcome. You can make a display in the windows of your flat, house, business, school, nursery, car, campervan, shop – or front garden!

Please don’t feel intimidated. Your display could be as simple as a candle, a Tudor goblet, a royal crown, or a Tudor gown. Or you could go all out and create a line of Elizabethans waiting in line to see Queen Elizabeth I progress through your town! Anything Elizabethan goes… as long as it’s family-friendly!

Elizabethans? What’s it all about?

In 1578 Queen Elizabeth I and more than 200 courtiers made an incredible journey travelling into the unknown lands of Norfolk on her annual progress.
