By David Prior at

This year’s competition to find Altrincham’s ‘Festive Favourite’ business or shop front is underway, with over 30 businesses lighting up the town with magical and imaginative Christmas displays.

Run by Altrincham Unlimited, the Business Improvement District (BID), there will be two opportunities to win: the ‘People’s Choice’ and a winner selected by design expert Leanne Wookey, Director at NoChintz, the award-winning interior design and branding agency.

Leanne explained: “I’m really excited about judging Altrincham’s Christmas shop fronts, I have a strong passion for creating head-turning spaces which are inspiring and functional, and I can’t wait to see the festive creativity of Altrincham’s retailers.”

To vote for your ‘Festive Favourite’, head to our Facebook page and simply ‘like’ the image of the business front you want to win.

The Facebook competition will run from December 7th to 14th and the winner of the public vote together with the design experts’ favourite will be announced on Altrincham Today.

Elizabeth Faulkner, BID Manager for Altrincham Unlimited, said: “This competition really captures everyone’s imagination each year, the town has a fantastic range of independent shops and high street favourites as well as a thriving food and drink scene, we would really encourage everyone to come and enjoy the town throughout the festive period, and to see the ‘Festive Favourite’ business fronts and choose the one they believe to be a deserving winner!”
