Harrogate BID and Harrogate in Bloom launch this year's Floral Shop Window Competition

10 June


The Harrogate BID team, working in partnership with Harrogate in Bloom, have launched this year’s Floral Shop Window Competition, encouraging local businesses to celebrate our town’s floral heritage. The competition will run alongside this year’s Floral Summer of Celebration, which has a theme of Friendship.

Matthew Chapman, Harrogate BID Manager, said “We hope as many businesses as possible will take part to create fantastic displays to ensure Harrogate is a blaze of colour to welcome visitors and residents into the centre.”
There will be three categories to enter in this year’s competition – Hotels and Guest Houses, Pubs, Restaurants and Cafes and Shops – and a prize will be presented to the winner of each group during an awards ceremony in September.
Judges will award points on key aspects including first impressions and ‘wow factor’, planting, size and style of containers, maintenance of paving, paths and signage, condition of the plants and noticeable environmentally friendly features.
To enter this year’s Floral Shop Window Competition, please email the Harrogate BID team on
Entries to be submitted by Friday 15th June and judging, by members of Harrogate in Bloom, will take place in the week commencing Monday 15th July.
