Final countdown to the Red Rose Awards 2015

Lancashire Business View's Red Rose Awards are little more than 24 hours away - but if you aren't one of the 1,100 ticketholders for the event, you can follow closely on social media.

RRA15-logo-for-webLast year’s Red Rose Awards was the biggest indoor dinner in Lancashire’s history and an award-winner as the Best UK Awards Event 2014.

The 2015 event, another sell-out, promises to be even more spectacular.

Twitter coverage throughout the awards has been powered by Burnley.co.uk and social media experts 3ManFactory have been drafted in to report on the action with updates, photos and video.

You can follow the @RedRoseAwards twitter account for insider updates and the #RRA15 hashtag for general chatter on the night. Inside the venue, tweets will be beamed live to large screens.

Event organiser and Lancashire Business View publisher Richard Slater said: "The Red Rose Awards is a great night out to celebrate what's great about Lancashire. It's all about encouraging people to buy local, having a bit of fun while we're at it, and of course, no long speeches!"

Reports will appear online at www.lancashirebusinessview.co.uk and in the May-June edition of Lancashire Business View magazine.
