Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Grinch Christmas window 2013 display by Medusa ApothecaryThe festive time of year is upon us again and as usual, a faithful band of creative elfs appear to be sprinkling their Christmas cheer and turning the shop windows up and down the town centre into festive themes and snowy scenes. As an extra incentive this year there is a competition being held for the best decorated window. The winning business will receive an amazing £300 cash prize!!!

Window dressers (or visual merchandisers as they sometimes like to be referred as!) have come up with some original and eye catching ideas in the past. The Grinch display last year by Medusa Apothecary was a big hit, this year Goulds have added some theatre to the high street and have constructed a red curtain extravaganza. But the big question is who is your favourite?

Scott Duncan from Medusa Apothecary is going to be judging all the entries in this inaugural year for the event. It is hoped that this competition will continue to grow and become a much bigger thing which will be run by an independent panel in the future.

To nominate your business to be entered into the competition all you need to do is send an email to and include your business name and address. Closing date for entries is 30th November so hurry and get your shop display recognised in helping to make Dorchester the best decorated town in Dorset this Christmas!

And don’t forget – to see all the great shop windows in their full glory, make sure you come on down to Dorchester’s Christmas Cracker Night on Thursday 4th December from 5pm with the big Christmas light switch on at 6.30pm.
