A Winter Windowland

It’s like a compilation album with hits from all your favourite artists. They just take a bit of finding. And whilst you’re looking you might discover something new, something previously overlooked. You might even need to come inside and look around. But quick, it’s getting late.

The Churchill Arms is famous for the best lightshow in London and next door, beneath the Christmas star, is the best Nativity in town.

Apologies for the late arrival of this blogpost, I’ve been without broadband for two weeks, but now catching up, I’ll add more in the coming days. Please if you can, come and see for yourself, it’s changing all the time, pictures are sold and new ones arrive, the story is changed and a new one gets told.

Now finally this blogpost is finished, but too late, the gallery is closed until 2021. London is in Tier 4 and pretty much on lockdown. But we can pick up emails remotely and happily answer any enquiries. Comments are always welcome. And the window display remains as a free street exhibition.

Happy Christmas!
