Red Rose Awards open for entries

The Red Rose Awards – which attracted 850 guests from across Lancashire in March this year – is open for entries ahead of 2013’s event.

Open to all sizes and types of business, there are 21 categories to ensure the best of the best is recognised on the night. But competition is fierce, as previous years have seen hundreds of entries.

Lancashire Business View publisher Richard Slater said: “The Red Rose Awards is the event where Lancashire business, commerce and industry are celebrated. It’s a night where we remind each other just how good Lancashire is; how deep its commercial excellence runs.

“For 2013, we’ll be back in the party capital of the UK and we promise a night that winners, nominees, guests and sponsors will remember!”

The event, to be held on March 14 at Blackpool’s Empress Ballroom, promises great entertainment, company, food, networking, drama and joy.

Red Rose Awards is supported by Forbes Solicitors, Ashton Hoyle, BAE Systems, Blackburn College, Cassons, Danbro, FSB, Lantei, Laura Hartley Recruitment, Mosaic Community Care, Napthens Solicitors, Peter Scott Printers, Spire Healthcare, WEC Group and Yorkshire Bank.
