Living Advent Calendar 2006

By Victoria Worsley

Saltaire Primary School - 1st December advent windowThe Living Advent Calendar for Saltaire will open its first ever window on Friday December 1st at the Primary School in Albert Road with a window made by the 5-year-olds in their art class.

Each night another window will open and light-up and you will be able to walk around the Village to see each of these (see the list below for the date and address of the openings in the build-up to Christmas). Victoria Hall and Shipley College have joined forces for the 15th and a window created by their design students will coincide with the celebrations of the extensive refurbishment of Victoria Hall. The spectacle will end with a window at Salts Mill.

A map will be available from the tourist office and other venues around Saltaire and you can also follow the progression of the windows each night on this website at

We would like to thank all of those who have enthusiastically participated and helped with special thanks to Claire Thornton, Claire Townsend, Maggie Silver, and Saviour Pirotta for all his work on the leaflets and Pamela Reynolds for making the website possible. The website has been designed by Chrys of our sister project in Hull and you can also track the Hull's Avenues sixth year of doing their advent through the links on our webpage.
