Red Rose Awards 2016 - Enter Now

Red Rose Awards 2016 is now open for entries!

The Red Rose Awards is the event where Lancashire business, commerce and industry are celebrated. It provides the best possible platforms to promote success, and to encourage inter-trading in the county.

It’s a night where we remind each other just how good Lancashire is. It’s a night when the spotlight is fixed firmly on our finalist businesses – the heroes of the Red Rose Awards and the heroes of the Lancashire economy.

Since Lancashire Business View launched the Awards in 2011, we have steadily grown and become the centrepiece attraction for the business community in the county with the sell-out ceremony taking place at the magnificent Empress Ballroom at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.

Why you should enter

The awards give you the chance to remind each other, and yourself, how good Lancashire is! It’s an opportunity to shout about what you do and receive recognition among peers.

Red Rose Awards provides the best possible platforms to promote success and to encourage trade in the county. If you’ve never been, ask someone who has!

“The entry process was very simple, straight forward and quick. The judging process was a great way of us taking opinions from outside perspectives and also raised important questions which have in-turn been added to the business development plan of the business moving forward”

Cuffe and Taylor
Winner of Creative Sector Business of the Year 2015

“Our business has benefitted in many ways. It has certainly raised awareness of our company generally and we think it has also given us further credibility with clients and referrers.”
