Tour of Britain window dressing competition

Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council are hosting the 2022 Tour of Britain Grand Depart for the first time this September. To show support and help build excitement, businesses across the city are encouraged to dress their windows with a cycling design or theme - the more creative the better! The Grand Depart is expected to bring much more coverage and footfall than in previous years and this is an opportunity to attract public interest in your business and receive free publicity, with some great prizes on offer for winning entries.


The window displays need to be completed by Monday 29 August and must stay dressed until Monday 5 September when the winning display will be announced. To enter, photographs of window displays should be emailed to by close of business on Monday 29 August.


Businesses are also being encouraged to provide bespoke offers and promotions for the day to encourage spectators to support local businesses and stay longer in the city on the day. Aberdeen City Council will support offers and promotions across its digital platforms and Tour of Britain webpages, and you can send details of any offers or promotions to
