This Christmas we have teamed up with Sugar Republic to transform 70 Liverpool Street (the old Minimax building) into a festive Christmas wonderland. Sugar Republic create art-based window displays to spark joy and fun for people of all ages. Make sure to swing by to see all the windows in the building from Saturday 18 November, after the Myer City of Hobart Christmas Pageant.

Sugar Republic prioritises sustainable practices by utilising public transport, paperless communication, and at least 70% recycled materials. They responsibly handle biodegradable balloons and use second-hand tinsel for eco-friendly Christmas events. You can read more on their commitment to sustainability here.

Please note: that Sugar Republic are not an entrant in the Window Display Competition.
