On Thursday evening (16 December) a walk took place around the area to view some of the imaginative light displays on the neighbourhood’s houses and in front gardens – led by local artist Claudia Collins

It was part of Knowle West Media Centre’s Project Night – a bi-monthly session for artists, creatives and community – which took to the streets instead of having its usual networking session.

The event, with free refreshments beforehand, was funded by Filwood Fantastic, Creative Civic Change and re:work.

And there was plenty to spark the imagination….
