Cambridge Contemporary Crafts - 2018 Winner


What is the Project:

Never is there a better time to experience the delights that Cambridge has to offer than at Christmas.  The twinkling lights, carol singers and Christmas cheer make it an enjoyable experience for all.

Cambridge has a fantastic array of Independent shops, boutiques, restaurants, and cafes that at Christmas time dress their windows to give shoppers an extra little treat whilst they are out choosing gifts for their loved ones.

Each year Cambridge BID encourage independent retailers to join in the Christmas Window Competition

Businesses are judged in the following areas:

  • Originality/ Creativity

  • Visual Impact

  • Festivity

  • Coherence of the display as a whole

The winning businesses receive additional coverage in Cambridge Independent, along with a cheque from Cambridge BID for £150 to give to a charity of their choice

How to get involved?

Judging for 2019 will commence in December
