‘Christmas Creatures’ Window Competition

Chichester city centre is buzzing with festive spirit, merriment and twinkling lights. We’re getting ready for the judging of our annual Christmas Window Competition on 8th December with Amanda and Julie of The Teddy Bear Ladies, known for their teddy bear restoration on BBC’s The Repair Shop.

This year, businesses in the city have been challenged to create charming window displays featuring beloved ‘Christmas Creatures’ inspired by folklore, tradition, and myth – from nativity scenes and Santa’s reindeer to snowmen and winter animals.

Judging criteria include presentation, imagination, and creativity based on the theme. The winning business will win 4 tickets to Chichester Festival Theatre’s Jungle Book production and a £50 Chichester Gift Card.

Experience the magic as local businesses transform storefronts into enchanting displays, capturing the joy of Christmas in Chichester. Scroll down to discover the participating businesses and why not go on a magical adventure viewing the displays in person!
