For many years now Sudbury has celebrated the creativity of our high street businesses with a Christmas Window display competition. Never has the innovation of our local businesses been more apparent and 2021 will see the return of the festive celebration of our marvellous high street businesses.

Last year over 60 businesses took part with a whopping 870 of you taking the time to vote for your favourite shop display.  The voting forms and map will be published on 3rd December and the winning display takes home a bumper festive hamper courtesy of Waitrose & Partners in Sudbury.

The Sudbury Christmas Window Display Competition is organised in partnership by: Sudbury Town Council and the bestof Sudbury with support from Waitrose & Partners and The Suffolk Free Press.

in aid of st nicholas hospice

Sudbury Town Council and St Nicholas Hospice Care invite you to remember someone special this Christmas by acquiring a memory decoration and having it printed with a short message of remembrance to be displayed on the Sudbury Memory Tree.​

Taking pride of place in Sudbury’s Old Market Place, the memory tree offers a chance to remember a lost loved one in a very special way for a suggested donation of £5 in support St Nicholas Hospice Care.
