Shop Window Competition
Newent is unusual, for Gloucestershire's smallest town it actually boasts a very large number of shops.
Several weeks before the Onion Fayre many of the retailers dress their windows with a theme decided by the organisers.
With prizes awarded for the most creative, certificates will proudly be on display.
The competition theme for 2019 will be announced in due course
The theme for 2018 was "Onions in History"
1st Prize-New Start Cat Rescue
2nd Prize-Old Shambles Charity Shop
Highly Commended-Tylers & Newent Library
Did you know that the Onion appears in pictures of Ancient Egypt over 3,000 years ago and the baboons loved them!
If you're in town before the Onion Fayre, why not check out what is on offer, and if you like walking there is a book of walks available for the town and surrounding countryside too. www.newentonline.co.uk
Programmes for the Onion Fayre will be available in advance from many of the shops and our friendly shopkeepers will be more than glad to tell you about what else there is to see and do in the area.
