The last remaining tickets for one of the highlights of the region’s business calendar are up for grabs.

There is now just one week to go before the Harrogate Advertiser Business Awards ceremony on Thursday, April 19 – when the waiting will finally be over and the 41 shortlisted companies will discover which among them has scooped the awards.

Harrogate Advertiser Series editor Jean MacQuarrie said: “The tension is really building now. I can’t wait till the golden envelopes are opened and we finally find out who all the talented winners are.”

As last year, the ceremony will be held at the Royal Hall in Harrogate, but this time there will be a Great Gatsby theme. The event on Thursday, April 19, will begin with a drinks reception sponsored by Harrogate-based energy company CNG Ltd, before a three-course meal with live entertainment from vintage jazz band the Charleston Charlies.

The awards are sponsored for the sixth year running by Harrogate estate agent Verity Frearson, and director James Verity said he would urge anyone in business locally to attend.

“It’s a great excuse to dust off the black tie and spend an entertaining evening in one of Harrogate’s finest venues,” he said. “It’s a fun evening with the people involved in the best local business – with lots of good food and drink too.”

Tickets for the event cost £71 per person plus VAT, and are available via karen.cross@jpress.co.uk 0113 238 8201 or olivia.richards@jpress.co.uk 0113 238 8445.
