Towns battle it out for best high street award

by on Tuesday 14 October, 2014 in Industry News

Towns and villages around Britain are set to battle it out after making it onto the shortlist for the Great British High Street Awards.

The competition to find Britain’s best high streets is highlighting new and innovative ways to boost the use of local high streets. It’s shining a light on hard working traders and communities around the country and showing what can be done to help shopping streets evolve to be places where people want to shop, socialise and work.

The contest is being run by the Future High Streets Forum and received more than 135 entries from across the UK. There are 7 categories – coastal, market town, city, village, local parade, town centre and London – and a shortlist of 21 has been drawn up. You can support your local high street on twitter using #GBHighSt or by visiting

The winners will win a share of £50,000 prize money and receive dedicated support and mentoring from industry experts. This could range from one to one coaching, to advice on creating business plans, to workshops on digital marketing.
