On Wednesday, Barrow BID announced that, to go alongside the event, they are once again running a competition to find the best-dressed store window in the town centre.

A spokesperson said: "Announced at the 1.45pm awards ceremony, the completion will see a local business receive an award for their awesome transport-themed window. 

"We would love to encourage as many businesses as possible to take part in this competition, which will not only make your business stand out, but also make your location feel more involved with the event."

Expressions Barrow triumphed last year, with local businesses encouraged to take the crown for themselves this time around.
