Wiltshire Creative and Salisbury BID are bringing Window Wanderland to Salisbury City Centre for the first time, this unique art gallery will bring a little magic and light to the city as the nights get darker between 4-7 November 2021. Window Wanderland Salisbury will celebrate the diversity in our city by drawing on the themes of Diwali to inspire the artwork, the triumph of light over darkness, happiness and positivity. 

Gareth Machin, Wiltshire Creative’s Artistic Director said today, “We’re delighted that Salisbury Arts Centre will offer a distinctive festive offer this year for young and old alike. It is a magical space and I’m sure our programme will bring much joy to all of our community.

Juliet Coveney, Salisbury Arts Centre Manager said today, “We are so pleased to be able to offer a diverse range of shows and activities this December at Salisbury Arts Centre.  This exciting programme offers something for everyone; if that be nights out with friends, craft workshops for children and adults as well as an endearing family show plus so much more.”
