Lancashire’s young business people celebrated at the Young ‘Uns Awards 2016 as the next generation of movers, shakers and decision makers were crowned at the ceremony at Winter Gardens Blackpool.

From legal eagles to digital dynamos and red-hot retailers those making waves in business throughout the county were recognised across 11 categories including Young ‘Un Entrepreneur of the Year and Young ‘Un Employee of the Year.

The awards, now in their second year, are organised by Lancashire Business View – the magazine for commerce, industry and regeneration. The event, which was themed around prohibition-era America, took place in the Spanish Ballroom at Winter Gardens

“The response we’ve had to the Young ‘Uns Awards 2016 has been terrific and it’s great to see business owners and young employees alike being nominated across the 11 categories.

“Our judges had a difficult job on their hands – congratulations to all of the winners, and finalists.”
