Shimmer and Sparkle on Sevenoaks High Street!

The judges have spoken in the competition for the 2018 Sevenoaks best dressed Christmas window! Amongst some scintillating entries, the winner for the best retail window is Joie de Vivre boutique on London Road, with The Chinaman as runner-up. The new category of non-retail window winner is Dulce’s Patisserie, with runner up Jo and Co at Hollybush. Congratulations to all for helping to make Sevenoaks look fabulously atmospheric and seasonal.

So not only go and admire these fantastic windows, but explore the shops themselves! Packed full of Christmas treats and surprises (both edible and non-edible), you’re certain to find Christmas gifts galore. Shop local and support our High Street.
