Lancaster and Heysham businesses shortlisted in Lancashire Tourism Awards

Two businesses from Lancaster and Heysham have been named finalists in the Lancashire Tourism Awards.

Marketing Lancashire, the county’s tourist board and destination management organisation, has announced the first finalists in the annual Lancashire Tourism Awards, with around 50 businesses now progressing to the next stage of the competition in 17 categories.

Locally, Lancaster Grand Theatre is a finalist in the category of Cultural Venue/Organisation, while The Royal at Heysham is shortlisted for the Lancashire Perfect Stay – Small Serviced Accommodation Award.

Rachel McQueen, Chief Executive of Marketing Lancashire commenting on this year’s finalists said: “It was always going to take time for the sector to recover from the last couple of years, but if there was ever a good sign that Lancashire tourism is bouncing back, it is in the calibre and creativity of this year’s finalists in the Lancashire Tourism Awards.

“They represent the very best of the county’s accommodation, attractions and hospitality businesses and, in this first stage of the competition, have demonstrated healthy bookings, improvements to their visitor offer and some truly ambitious plans for the future – which are all very exciting.

“Lancashire’s tourism and hospitality businesses are nothing short of remarkable in their resilience and innovation and we look forward to celebrating with all the finalists and our supporters at the Lancashire Tourism Awards 2022 event in the new year.”

The finalists announced today will now go through to the next stages of the competition which includes mystery shopping in some cases, followed by a presentation and interview with a panel of judges for all.

All finalists will meet and be interviewed by the judges in early November, with the awards ceremony due to take place at the start of 2023.
