Christmas around the world will be the theme of this year’s Devizes Living Advent Calendar.

For the fourth year, Long Street resident Kate Walling is planning to have a ring of lighted windows throughout the town centre.

As in previous years each window will be numbered and ‘open’ on a pre-agreed evening in Advent, then remain lit each night until twelfth night.

Mrs Walling said the theme had been inspired by the way the world has flocked to Britain for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic Games.

She said: “I have already spoken to a number of possible window owners and I know there are many good ideas about countries to use and ways to illustrate them. Participants can be as artistic, creative, elaborate or as simple and straightforward as they want in their interpretation of this.

“The aim is to have fun and take part in a lovely community event.

“A programme of participants will be produced so that as many people as possible can see the windows as they ‘walk the calendar’.”
