Best dressed shop window competition


There will be a best dressed shop window competition as part of this year’s Harborough by the Sea event. This will be a chance for shops and businesses in the town to get creative and, as they have done in previous years, help bring the event to life across the town.

This year’s theme is vintage 50s and 60s so you may take some inspiration from this; or you may take inspiration from the traditional British seaside scene and bring your shop window to life with sandcastles, deckchairs and seagulls. It is up to you how you take part.


There will be a prize for the best dressed shop window; and winners will be announced at the launch event on Friday 28 July.

More details will be made available soon but we wanted to give you a little extra time to get those creative juices start flowing.
