The Historic Yorkshire spa town of Harrogate has often topped the list of the “happiest place to live” in Britain and is sometimes known as Happygate!

The upmarket shops, green open spaces and idyllic North Yorkshire location makes it a destination for visitors and shoppers from across the country, especially through the summer months. But with increasing competition from online retailers and large out of town shopping malls, Harrogate has to fight hard to keep the customers coming to its tea rooms, boutique shops and traditional independent retailers at the all important time of Christmas.

This two part documentary follows the great and the good of Harrogate as they prepare for the town’s annual Christmas Windows Competition. More than 50 shops pull out all the stops to put on the best window display possible in order to wow the crowds and to give them a festive feel that they simply cannot get on the internet or smart phone.

Episode 1

Harrogate’s community come together to raise funds for the town’s Christmas lights. The town’s retailers get ready to compete in the Christmas window competition. Students at the local college compete to design a show stopping Christmas statue.
