Window displays on Pitsmoor’s Advent Trail 2021

Advent trail

The Pitsmoor Advent Trail is on now until Christmas Eve! For the second year running, the dark nights will be lit up with window displays in the run up to Christmas.

Each household that has signed up will create a window display for their day of advent that people can go and look at, like a giant walk through Advent calendar, spreading some festive cheer. It is already half way through, but it’s not too late to view the festive window displays created by local Burngreave residents and the event is ongoing until the 24th December.

The trail happens each year between 1st and 24th December across the streets of Pitsmoor. Each night of Advent, a local address creates a festive window display, creating a giant walk through Advent calendar.

Organiser Danielle Fortier says:

“We’re a little over half way through our Advent Trail… There’s so much talent, creativity and enthusiasm in Pitsmoor!”

You can still visit Each window which are all lit up as it gets dark, and to help you visit the displays each address is marked on a map, with a new one for each day of Advent, from 1st December all the way up to Christmas Eve.


Want to take part in a fun, creative project?

For people who like the idea of making an Advent Trail window but don’t have the time or space to make their own, people can go along to a series of workshops to help create the window display for Abbeyfield House with local artist Patrick Amber. Everyone is welcome to go along to any of the sessions, so don’t worry if you missed one, and there will be free mince pies and non-alcoholic wine:

  • Design and preparation: Wednesday 15th December 2021 5pm – 7pm
  • Create the display: Saturday 18th December 11am – 4pm
  • Putting the display in the window: Tuesday 21st December 2pm – 4pm

Enjoy the trail from home!

If you can’t make it to the trail itself, Danielle is posting a picture of each day’s window display in Pitsmoor’ Advent Trail Facebook group.
