Culture Warrington will have a free seasonal project, situated in the Golden Square with the aim to evoke the magic of Christmas morning — and everyone is welcome.
On the 1st of December, ‘At No.25’ will open at the old Shipton’s jewellery store, opposite Starbucks, and will run through till the end of December.
The immersive Christmas experience’s contents are being kept under wraps until the big unveiling, but it is expected to be “elaborate, over-the-top, and very festive.”
The initiative is being led by Leah Biddle, Cultural Manager at Culture Warrington, with assistance from Golden Square and match funding from Warrington BID and Warrington Borough Council.
The project will be led by three Warrington-based artists:
Daisy James and Enya Koster, two visual storytellers, will construct the installation’s visual aspect.
Felicity Goodman is a storyteller who will lead storytelling workshops with important community groups (Wolfpint SEND group, Creative Remedies, Sure Start, older adults group) to collect Christmas morning tales, memories, and key phrases. After that, Felicity will record the tale and add music to it.
Enya and Daisy will be assisted by Priestley College students in the creation of the art, and one student from LIPA will assist with installation.
The windows will be wrapped and installed by the end of November. The exhibit will subsequently be unwrapped on December 1st and will conclude on January 6th.
We are more than ready for the Warrington Christmas festivities, make this Christmas magical and join us at No. 25.
