The Awards Ceremony

The Awards Ceremony

The inaugural North West Family Business Awards took off in first class style, in the Concorde Hangar at The Runway Visitor Park, Manchester Airport. Held on March 6th 2020, it was a sparkling celebration of the finest family businesses across the North West, hosted by television and radio presenter (and North West native!) Nigel Barden.

Guests arrived to a warm reception and pre-dinner drinks, with the opportunity to step inside the flagship BA Concorde G-BOAC for a tour and photo opportunity. Family businesses from Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside mingled and chatted, before taking their seats for a three course meal.

A video by +3k Animation Studios introduced the Awards, highlighting our finalists and welcoming guests to enjoy their evening. Pre and post dinner entertainment was provided by the Halle Choir, who sang a rendition of We Are Family; and Richard Sanderson, our resident fiddler, who got the crowd moving with a lively performance we’re sure will be remembered by many for years to come!

We also had the opportunity to learn more about Cumbria, Cheshire, Merseyside and Lancashire’s Community Foundations; and how family businesses can get involved and show their support.

Then, the moment of truth: it was time to announce our winners, who were presented with awards created by Miles-Moore Ceramics and Front Row Graphics. Head over to our NWFBA2020 Winners page to meet the family businesses who wowed our judges to take home the coveted prizes.

Awards presented, congratulations offered, and happy tears shed, it was then time to dance the night away to a live performance by Molly’s Chambers, before heading home to reflect on a fantastic evening.

A huge thank you to everyone who made the North West Family Business Awards the fantastic event it was; and congratulations to all of our NWFBA2020 Winners.
