Hyndburn Business Awards 2019

Nominations are now closed for Hyndburn Business Awards 2019. We have introduced some new categories and welcomed a number of new sponsors. As at 9.00am on Tuesday April 16th when nominations  closed, we have received a record breaking 704 nominations for 234 different businesses, people and associations. To find out who has been nominated so far, go to our news pages.

The finalists for HAwards19 can be found here.

The ceremony will once again be in the Ballroom at Accrington Town Hall on the evening of Tuesday June 18th. There will be a new caterer this year, as Accrington & Rossendale College will no longer be able to offer the service. They did a great job the first three years of the awards, and its sad that they won’t be able to continue – however, it does give us the opportunity to showcase a different Hyndburn food business. This year it will be Le Petit Bistro of Oswaldtwistle.

Hyndburn Business Awards 2018

We thought the response in 2017 was great, but 2018 trumped it big style! We received 639 nominations, the highest figure ever. 164 businesses were nominated. 14 local people, clubs and societies were nominated for Pride of Hyndburn. The winners were announced to a packed audience of 270 at the ceremony on the evening of Tuesday June 19th at Accrington Town Hall.

Hyndburn Business Awards 2017

A huge vote of thanks to all our sponsors, but most especially thank you to everyone that took the time and trouble to nominate in record numbers for the Awards in 2017. We received a bumper crop of high quality entries, which made the job of the judging panel extremely challenging. You can find the list of HAwards17 finalists here. The winners were announced at the ceremony, which was held in the ballroom at Accrington Town Hall on the evening of June 13th 2017. It was a full house again, and was a magnificent celebration of local business and enterprise. The full list of winners, along with photographs from the ceremony, can be found here.
