Nine Elms Advent Calendar Trail 2020

Following the success of last year’s Giant Advent Calendar, Nine Elms Arts Ministry are once again showcasing the Nine Elms community and local artists by creating a walking trail of beautiful windows and installations. The theme this year is ‘Light in Darkness’.

From 1 to 24 December, a new window will be revealed online each day showcasing advent calendar windows at local schools, offices, community centres and cafes. Nine Elms Arts Ministry are also inviting residents to take part in festive activities and decorate their own windows around the same theme to join in the fun!

As the world has changed this year, the event has had to change too and there will not be any in-person launch events.

The focus will be on the advent walking trail of lights in line with current coronavirus restrictions. To give you a taste of last year’s festivities, look back at the highlights from 2019 in the video below.

Keep up to date with the latest calendar news on Instagram and Facebook @nineelmsartsministry or visit the Nine Elms Arts Ministry website to sign up for updates, view the map or to get some inspiration for decorating your own window.

The Advent Calendar project is supported by the Diocese of Southwark, Battersea Power Station Foundation and other local sponsors, in partnership with Wandsworth Council’s Nine Elms team.

The calendar is co-ordinated by Nine Elms Arts Ministry, an emerging community exploring the arts, spirituality and social justice in the heart of the Battersea Power Station and Nine Elms development and a project of the Anglican Diocese of Southwark. Contact for more information.
