Finalists of the GloucestershireLive Business Awards 2019


With one week to go until the 22nd annual GloucestershireLive Business Awards for 2019, the big question might be what to wear if you are lucky enough to have a ticket? The event is black-tie, so delve deep into your wardrobes to find the very best glad rags!

The proceedings take place in the Centaur at Cheltenham Racecourse on Thursday 10 October from 6.30pm. Gloucestershire businesses come together to celebrate diverse accomplishments from around the county and find out who will be crowned the winner of each of the twelve categories, including the surprise of who will be awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award accolade.

The evening will begin with a welcome glass of fizz, and after finding your table, you will sit down to a warm welcome from Rachael Sugden, Senior Editor of GloucestershireLive and the Citizen & Echo. The first half of the awards takes place before a break for a three-course dinner, followed by the second half of the awards. The event ends with the Business of the Year category which will be announced by our very own Tim Watkins, Managing Partner here at Randall & Payne.

Below is a reminder of the finalists for the 2019 event, along with photos from a drinks reception we hosted at Chargrove House last month to celebrate the success of getting being named finalists at the GloucestershireLive Business Awards.
