With so many indoor events cancelled, here’s one that’s entirely outdoors – a wander around Greenwich looking at advent windows.
Each evening from 1st to 24th December, a home, shop or office in Greenwich will unveil their own advent window, until all 24 windows are opened. A variety of media will be used, including paper art, models, light installations and paintings.

The windows then stay “open” until 3rd January, so it’s ideal for a post-Christmas socially distanced walk. Once all 24 Advent Windows have been opened, seeing all of them usually takes around 3 hours on foot.
Greenwich’s advent windows have been running for 14 years now and were created by St. Alfege Church as a way of getting the community more involved in Christmas, and it’s proven to be very popular.
There’s a map on their website, and you can print off a larger PDF version as well.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
