Businesses across Blackburn and Darwen are celebrating after being named finalists in the second annual Hive Blackburn and Darwen Business Awards.

Successful businesses have had their written entries validated and scored against strict criteria to be named one of four finalists in each category.

Winners will be announced at the black-tie ceremony which takes place on May 26 at the magnificent Blackburn Cathedral.

“The awards do a great job in highlighting the fantastic businesses we have within the borough and we’re pleased they’ve taken this opportunity to shout about what they do and celebrate the extraordinary people working for them.”

Brian Bailey, director of planning and prosperity at Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council said:

There are 14 awards in total; including the Hive Chairman’s Award and the Arte et Labore Award as well as the The Young Entrepreneur and The Young Employee Award.
