A DOZEN local artists will have the opportunity to display their work around the town in a bid to help create a festive Winter Windowland for families to enjoy.

The artists have all been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic but the event, which is part of Barnsley Bright Nights, will provide the artists with a platform to showcase their talent.

During the Winter Windowland, Barnsley College will play host to a UK exclusive from Yorkshire-born Canadian artist Sam Meech.

The Moon Is will feature a giant projected moon with words appearing on the surface that describe it in new ways. You can contribute your own metaphors for the moon by using the hashtag #TheMoonIs on Twitter.

The Moon Is will be shown at Barnsley Sixth Form College.

Other art installations will be shown at Barnsley Town Hall where The Lights of Christmas are set to light up the centre of the building.

Peter Pan-themed shadow artwork will be on display on Eldon Street, and wooden birds highlighting how people have come together during the pandemic will be on display in the windows of the Barnsley Chronicle on Church Street.

Barnsley's Winter Windowland will take place from tomorrow (December 10) to January 10.
