The winners were cheered on by a bumper audience of more than 1,100 at the Winter Gardens' Empress Ballroom for the third year running.

Businesses from the length and breadth of the county vied for titles across a range of categories, with only the best of the best, as selected by a panel of expert judges, progressing through to the shortlist and a rigorous interview stage before being rewarded for their excellence.

In addition to the 25 category winners, the special Lancashire Business View award was presented to Darwen’s Jubilee Tower Credit Union.

Event founder and producer, Richard Slater, who is also the publisher of Lancashire Business View, said: “It has been another fantastic Red Rose Awards, now in our sixth year celebrating Lancashire Business.

“We created the event to acknowledge business excellence, provide the best possible platforms to share successes, and encourage trade in the county. It is fantastic to see that so many support that vision.

“This is the largest event of its kind in the county, which means lots of potential customers, collaborators and suppliers to make friends with, because if you can buy it in Lancashire, then do so!

“It was a remarkable evening: our 150 finalists alone generated more than £1bn of sales and almost £100m of profits in the past year.”

BBC Radio Lancashire and North West Tonight host Graham Liver compered the evening, with entertainment from Gravity Live, Mr Wilson's Second Liners and Blackpool band The Deadbeats.

Red Rose Awards was named best awards event at the PPA Connect Awards in 2014 and was a finalist in 2015.
