History of this Award
2016 was the first year for the Best-Dressed Christmas Window Competition. It was lovely addition to the day, helping the town get nice and Christmassy in time for the Festival. It's also a great way to remember the incredible Sarah-Jane Shellard - who began the Festival of Light all those years ago.
In 2017 we increased from 9 windows to 32 - all ready and festive in time for the Festival!
In 2018 Cappadocia again very kindly offered the 1st prize of £50 worth of vouchers for dinner in their fabulous restaurant. New for 2018 Rush offered a 2nd prize of a Kerastase ritual treatment and professional blowdry for a lady or cut and finish if a man won.
Our kind sponsors!
