The organisers of Perth Festival of the Arts, in conjunction with the Perthshire Advertiser, are running a Shop Window Competition for this year’s festival, which takes place between 21st and 31st May.
It is hoped that shops and businesses will dress their windows in style for the occasion, reflecting the themes of music, comedy drama and art. The city centre will be decorated with colourful banners carrying the Festival designs. The banners capture the spirit of the festival with its colour and vitality reflecting the mix of artforms in this year’s programme. The judging will take place on Tuesday, May 19th. There will be three categories: one for department stores, another for smaller shops and one for charity shops.
Prizes will be tickets to Festival events. Artists performing at this years event include The Proclaimers. Jools Holland & His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra & Marc Almond, King Creosote, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, The Only Way is Downton, English Touring Opera La boheme, The Sixteen, Courtney Pine, Festival Ceilidh, Ronnie Scott's All Stars & Clare Martin, The Massed Bands of the Royal Marines...and much more.
