Altrincham’s Best Dressed Window Competition
This week 25 of Altrincham’s businesses will celebrate all things floral by entering the town’s Best Dressed Window Competition. The competition coincides with the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park when a free shuttle bus service will be in operation from Altrincham Interchange to the Showground at Tatton Park (Wednesday 17 – Sunday 21 July).
Altrincham Unlimited, Altrincham’s Business Improvement District, which is funded by local businesses, is coordinating the competition. There will be two opportunities for businesses to win; the RHS judges will tour the town on Wednesday 17 July and will choose their overall favourite. People can also vote for their favourite in the ‘People’s Choice’ competition, which will be hosted by Altrincham Today on their Facebook page. Simply ‘like’ your favourite to register your vote. The winners will be announced on Monday 22 July.
Those with RHS Flower Show Tatton Park Tickets can also access a variety of fabulous offers around the town during the week and there will be Children’s Flower Crown Workshops on Saturday 20 July at Open Studios on Stamford New Road.
Kate Gerbich, Events and Communications Manager for Altrincham Unlimited said “It will be great to see the town’s businesses looking amazing as they get creative with the ‘Best Dressed Windows’ competition. We want to encourage everyone to come into Altrincham and enjoy the town, but we are also aware that the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park brings thousands of visitors through the interchange and we would love them to spend time in the town at either end of their day, or come back to visit on another day”.
