12 shops have gone all out to showcase their Christmas creativity: Adele’s Dancewear, Churches Book Shop, Claire Christian Couture, Cowley Groves, Crossroads, Curpheys, Freedom Travel, Hospice, Out of the Blue, Magazzino (last year’s winner), Mannin Barbers and Thorntons.


To vote, visit Douglas Town Centre Management’s Facebook page where photos of the 12 stores’ windows are posted then like your favourite and the shop receiving the most likes when voting closes on Wednesday December 5 at 10am will be declared the winner.’s Ian Rowley said: ‘As a Douglas town centre-based business we’re delighted to be sponsoring this year’s Best Dressed Window competition. We’ve seen how previous years’ entrants have really got behind the challenge and made huge efforts to add some extra colour, fun and sparkle to Christmas in the capital, so we’re looking forward to see how this year’s shops interpret the design brief to dress to impress.’


Douglas Town Centre Manager Oliver Cheshire said: ‘We’re very grateful to for coming on board as sponsors and offering such a generous prize. Every year the competition not only reveals some amazing design talent but also a genuine desire on the part of participating stores to ramp up the festive atmosphere to mega-watt level and add to the raft of street attractions and entertainment we’ve planned for the coming weeks.’
