Festive Shop Window Trail

Festive Shop Window Trail

Closing Date: Wednesday 27th October

The Brief.

 Crewe Town Council is looking to appoint a local artist to develop and deliver a festive themed shop window trail across Crewe Town Centre as part of the 2021 Crewe Christmas programme.

If you’re a Crewe based artist with a passion for and experience of developing and delivering family focused shop window trails and love getting into the Christmas spirt as much as we do (we love it a lot) – we want to hear from you!

We want to hear from artists that can commit to:


  • Developing and installing a shop window trail in 10 shop windows by 25th November 2021 ( including liaising with businesses and confirming locations).


  • Producing an activity sheet to accompany the shop window trail (including a trail map, instructions and the option for those who participate in the trail to enter a competition).


The shop window trail and activity sheet need to:


  • Have a festive theme.


  • Be family friendly and creative.



We want to make it really easy for you to make a submission.

  • Tell us on no more than one side of A4 what you’d like to do.
  • Tell us about a couple of things you’ve done before, and a few sentences about yourself.


If you have any questions about the opportunity, contact our Events and Communications Manager Rachel Rhodes.

  • Rachel.Rhodes@crewetowncouncil.gov.uk

Send your submission to: Rachel.Rhodes@crewetowncouncil.gov.uk by 1pm on Wednesday 27th October 2021. [marked: Festive Shop Window Crewe]
