Advent Window Trail

A festive town project to celebrate the people and businesses of Stratford-upon-Avon

The festive season might be a little different this year, but we can still connect to those around us in Stratford-upon-Avon (and beyond). Discover 24 unique and surprising window displays created in partnership with local shops, community groups and independent businesses based in Stratford-upon-Avon town centre. 

You can follow the trail in any order and visit as many locations as you wish.

Windows with gold stars will have their displays available to view from the first of December.
Windows marked with purple stars will be available from the date listed on the map.


Each window on the map will also contain a gingerbread figure hidden in the display. Can you find them all?

Take a picture of your favourite gingerbread person in their hiding place and share it with us using #StratfordAdventTrail


Head to our Instagram account, @thersc to find out how you can win a selection of goodies from the RSC shop including an RSC mug, notebook and a selection of The Boy in the Dress merchandise. Terms and conditions apply.
