​​VE Day Celebrations​​

​Much like the rainbows that have been popping up across the country we want you to make more magnificent window art.

Simply using materials found in your home, a little imagination and a street facing window in your home, we can turn our towns into the biggest outdoor street gallery in the world!

As part of a national call out residents are encouraged to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day on 8 May with a stay at home street party, in support we would like you to decorate your window to celebrate VE Day.​

Sounds great, right? Check out what local artist Jane Cuthbert has put together to get you inspired!
