AS PERSHORE gets set to host its annual carnival today (Monday), a popular town shop is celebrating victory in the shop window contest.

The Deli @ Pershore came out on top of the competition which is run by members of the Pershore Carnival organising committee.

Craig and Rachael Etherington from the High Street venue impressed judges Pershore Mayor Tony Rowley, Gill McEvoy and Simon Dowdeswell with their design to bring their shop window to life.

Abbey Tea Rooms and Acorns came second and third while Peter J Smith Opticians were highly commended by judges.

This year’s event kicks off from 10.30am on Monday with the procession getting under way at 1pm.

Abbey Park will be rocking from 6.30pm to the sounds of band Prism while from 7pm musical songstress Charlii Harrington will take to the stage.

The Garry Allcock Big Band will be making music from 7.30pm while a touch of Jailhouse Rock will be on offer from 8.30pm when Elvis tribute act Andy Kelso hits the stage.

Following a further performance from the Garry Alcock Big Band from 9pm, the fantastic day of events will come to a close with a firework display at 10pm.
