We can’t wait to celebrate the return of the AELTC Wimbledon Championships this month, even if we did miss out on tickets to the full-capacity finals.
The return of the fluttering purple and green flags to the village has never been more welcome and it seems that all the participating shops and businesses in the tennis windows competition have upped their game!
Our tennis throwback window pays homage to the 1987 movie Mannequin, which featured Kim Cattrall as a beautiful Egyptian trapped in the body of a 1980s department store mannequin, together with brat pack actor, Andrew McCarthy as an unlikely window-dresser. An eighties classic!
Together with Peacock & Co’s creative friends, who go under the title of Shokella, we hit eBay hard, got handy with a saw and an umpire’s chair and are delighted to present our first big splash tennis window. Even Kim Cattrall herself has given us her vote of approval – can you?
Voting is now open on the Wimbledon Village Events Facebook page. Please cast your vote by liking our picture. And while you’re here, why not try our throwback quiz?
