Lancashire Tourism Awards winners announced

Twenty of the county’s finest tourism businesses have been awarded for excellence at the 10th annual Lancashire Tourism Awards.

The Outstanding Contribution to Tourism Award went to all 250 Guilders of the Preston Guild 2012; volunteers who welcomed over one million visitors to Preston and ensured the smooth-running and success of this ‘once every twenty years’ event.

“Tourism is of vital importance to the economic good health of Lancashire and our finalists and winners are at the forefront of a drive to improve the industry’s current £3.4bn contribution to the visitor economy, which Marketing Lancashire will proudly continue to lead and develop, through creative partnerships and strategic and ambitious marketing.”

The event was directed and managed by Fettle Events with Marketing Lancashire and was the first event of its kind ever held at Blackburn Cathedral. Award-winning cheesemaker Dewlay, provided one of the ingredients for the menu, as well as a three tier celebration cheese-cake, and a special beer from Blackburn brewers Thwaites was available to guests at the drinks reception.

Winners this year received a newly designed trophy; a handcrafted, distinctive glass wave design, featuring the Lancashire rose created by Stonegate Glass Studio.
