Help the Mayor to bring festive cheer to the Town Hall

Winning Chritsmas Cards 2020

Winning Christmas card entries from 2020.

Christmas is coming and the Mayor of Tower Hamlets is once again on the lookout for bright and colourful new designs for his Christmas cards.

Children who live in or go to school in Tower Hamlets are being encouraged to think about what would make an ideal festive scene in the borough.

Three winning designs will feature on festive cards sent out by Mayor John Biggs, Will Tuckley, Chief Executive and James Thomas, Corporate Director of Children and Culture.

The lucky winners will also be invited to the town hall along with their parents or guardians, so the Mayor can thank them personally and present them with a gift token.

Mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Biggs said:

“We all know that Tower Hamlets has lots of wonderfully talented and creative young people who we can rely on to come up with exciting designs for our Christmas cards. Next week is half-term, so why not spend some time working on a magical Christmas creation. Best of luck to everyone who is taking part.”​

The council received more than 70 entries through its 2020 competition.
