The Burnley Business Awards 2022 will be held at Towneley Hall on Thursday, June 30.

The 11 categories proved popular with the borough’s business community and the finalists will now present to a judging panel this week at Impact Conferencing.

Mick Cartledge, chief executive at Burnley Council, which is leading the event, thanked the town’s businesses for their hard work and commitment during the past two years.

“I know the judges were incredibly impressed by the entries and it was a tough job to whittle down the entries to the finalists. This was especially the case in the small business categories, which were by far our most popular.”

He added: “It’s testament to the hard work and resilience of our business community over the past two years and I’d like to thank Burnley businesses for their commitment and perseverance. And to those who did not make the finals, please do not be disheartened, the volume of entries was high, and we’d certainly encourage you to bring your success stories to us once again at the next Burnley Business Awards.

“All the best to the finalists and we look forward to celebrating the borough’s determination on the night of the awards.”
