Dunster Christmas Window Competition

30th November - 28th December

The Christmas magic starts in Dunster on Saturday 30th November when the first-ever Dunster Christmas Window Competition begins. Over 30 of the village’s traders will be dressing their windows to compete for the title of ‘The Best Christmas Window’.


If this is your first time in the medieval village of Dunster, the ballot box at the Yarn Market will also have a map of the trail. Each participating business window will have a number and when you have seen them all, simply write the number of your favourite window onto a voting slip and drop it into the ballot box. We recommend you bring your camera or phone with you on the trail to take photos

of the windows and review them to refresh your memory before casting your vote. You will also have a wonderfully festive collection of photos to share with your friends on your favourite social media sites: @DiscoverDunster on Facebook and Instagram and @dunsterofficial on Twitter.


By voting, you enter the incredible prize draw to win one of the following:

* Bespoke wooden single garden gate by the Dunster-based carpenter Andrew Dodd, www.andrewdodd.co.uk

* One night stay for two at Yarn Market Hotel, www.yarnmarkethotel.co.uk 

* Gift voucher to Dunster Living interior shop, www.dunsterliving.com 


The winning window and the three winners of the prize draw will be announced on 29th December at www.discoverdunster.info and across our social media pages.
