About the awards

The GloucestershireLive Business Awards are back for the 25th year to honour the region’s best businesses, and the amazing people behind them, from the boardroom to the shop floor.

The glittering 25th silver anniversay awards dinner takes place at the The Centaur, Cheltenham Racecourse, Prestbury, Cheltenham GL50 4SH on Thursday 12th October. The awards will celebrate innovation, entrepreneurship, technology and creativity; honour brilliant people going the extra mile for their customers and clients, and shine a light on the fantastic things businesses are doing to make a difference right here across Gloucestershire.

Join us at the 25th anniversary with a glass of fizz on arrival, gala two course dinner, special entertainment, the award presentations and you can party the night away with our entertainment!
