Our Playing Out team invite you to join in with the Festive Streets project

Decorate the windows on your street

Turn your street into a Festive Street

The team from our Playing Out project are very excited to announce the launch of their new scheme in St Albans District called Festive Streets.

Decorate the windows on your street

The project encourages neighbours like you in St Albans, Harpenden and the villages to decorate the windows on your street during the winter Festive Season, enabling you to celebrate as a community in a contact-free way and bring cheer to your neighbourhood.

Co-ordinate with your neighbours

In its simplest form, neighbours volunteer to decorate a street-facing window of their home and co-ordinate with each other to agree a timetable and a theme. 

Why not start the conversation today? Simply save the above poster and share it to your street's WhatsApp or Facebook group.

Festive classrooms or office blocks too

The Festive Street concept could equally be applied to school classroom windows, an office block or a parade of shops.

Involve all your neighbours

All the neighbours in a street are invited to join in with Festive Streets – whether they choose to decorate a window or simply enjoy the display

Keep it simple or go to town

The project is run at street level and you can decide for yourselves whether you keep it simple or go the full hog – perhaps raising money for charity or choosing a more ambitious theme.

Keep it sustainable and safe

Please use sustainable, recycled materials wherever possible and minimise energy usage, particularly on lights. Please remember that all activities must be Covid-safe.

Sign up for a free information pack

Sign up now for a free electronic information pack. The pack includes posters and templates of notes that can be shared with your neighbours to get you started.
