Levenshulme lights up with spectacular Christmas window trail

Dazzling displays light up Levy for a fourth year. We share our favourites and tell you how you can still get involved ✨

As the nights draw in, ever darker, one corner of Manchester always finds a way to lighten the mood.

Since 2017, Levenshulme locals and businesses have been designing and crafting unique displays for everyone to enjoy - from twilight forests to nativity scenes and more.

Last year, over 130 windows lit up across Levy and gave everyone a little something to smile about.

This year is no different. And even though the snow has melted (for now), the locals will make sure there's plenty of festive cheer to go around.

So if you're looking for a reason to leave the warmth and comfort of winter hiberation, print off the official map and take a journey along the trail of beautiful, fun and sometimes quirkily decorated festive windows that make up Levenshulme Community Christmas Windows.

If that wasn't tempting enough, here's a little showcase of some of our favourites.

When do the lights switch-on?

All the lights formally 'switch-on' at 5:30pm on 1 December 2021, and will be on from the same time, every evening, until Christmas Eve.

How to explore the window trail

From the 30 November, you can download and print the official map.

From there, it's entirely up to you. Try and see as many as you can in one night, or map out smaller routes and see a few every night until Christmas. You might even take a pit stop at Isca for a mulled wine to keep those cold nights at bay 🍷

How you can get involved

Even if you missed the official switch-on, you can still get your window added to the map using the contact form on the Levenshulme Community Christmas Windows website.
