Christmas Window Competition

The annual Christmas Window Competition takes place each December with businesses throughout the City Centre encouraged to get involved. During the festive season, shoppers notice how local businesses have made their shop windows extra special by adding festive lights and decorations to add some Christmas sparkle to their customer shopping experience. The competition continues to grow from strength to strength and each year we look forward to more fantastic festive illuminations and displays.

In 2018 we launched the ’12 Windows of Christmas’, which opened the competition to the public for voting. The competition was sponsored by Maldron Hotel, Foyleside Shopping Centre and the City Hotel.

The 2018 ’12 Windows of Christmas’ were:

Quigg’s Florist – Great James Street, Checkpoint Charlie – Waterloo Street, The Gift Box – Shipquay Street, Café Zest – Spencer Road, The Quirky Raven – Spencer Road, The Black Tie Showroom – Strand Road, Sproules Jewellers – Carlisle Road, No19 Craft Design – The Craft Village, Mermaid Cove – Ferryquay Street, Douglas and Cobane – Spencer Road, Walled City Crafter’s – The Craft Village, Evolve Menswear – Foyle Street.
