The Thirsk Christmas Window Competition 2019 Winner is...



The winner of the 2019 Thirsk Christmas Window Competition is Alina’s Florist.


The competition was independently judged by Thirsk Mayor David Duffey on Thursday 5th December. There were so many excellent window displays that it was difficult to choose between the local businesses but the Kirkgate florist beat the rest to the punch.

The runners up in the competition included The Clock Works, Ewe and Yarn and Eufloria along with the highly commended window displays from Crafts of Thirsk, The Fabric Bird and Love Thy Interiors.




There were so many wonderful festive windows that we couldn’t not mention Kristina’s, Vixendale Gifts, Humphrey & Tilly, Thirsk Information Centre, The World of James Herriot, Occasions of Thirsk, Well Heeled Boutique, The Salvation Army, Cooper & Barr Opticians, Yorkshire Sitting Pretty, The Greengrocers, The Artist’s Palette, Arty Party, Calvert’s Carpets, Herriot Hospice, Bernard Nicholson Funeralcare, The Pamper Lounge, Blue Cross Thirsk, White Rose Books, Row Opticians, Tidings, The Olde Sweet Shops, Beauty Within plus many more.
