Altrincham’s Brit Fest Window Competition Winner Announced

Altrincham BID, who produce Visit Altrincham, is thrilled to announce the Judges' Choice winner of The Brit Fest Window Competition in Altrincham. The competition, which has seen 18 of Altrincham’s shops and businesses transform their windows red, white and blue to coincide with The Brit Fest which takes place this weekend (Friday 5th – Sunday 7th July). After careful deliberation, the judges, Jodie Saint and Jo Cushing from Oyez Arts, have selected the winning window display.

Jodie and Jo, who are due to open Oyez Arts in Altrincham Town Hall, were impressed by the calibre of the entries. "The creativity and effort put into each display was truly remarkable. It was a joy to see how each business interpreted the theme in their unique way, bringing the essence of the festival to Altrincham's streets. We are excited to announce Laundry B as the Judges' Choice winner for their outstanding and imaginative display with live performers," said Jodie Saint.

 

Jo Cushing added, “We also wanted to give a special mention to MOST Bakery, for their incredibly impactful window, Art with a Heart for their display which involved the work of so many of their community, Heritage Healthcare, for their huge effort and ‘gramping’ festival feel, Two Brothers Coffee for the incredible detail of their display, Randalls for the quality of their painted window and Jake Shoes for incorporating their product. Come into Altrincham to see them all – they’re amazing”.

In addition to the Judges' Choice, the competition also includes a People's Choice award. Residents and visitors are invited to vote for their favourite window display on Visit Altrincham's Facebook page. Voting is open now and will close on Friday morning, with the winner being announced shortly afterwards.
