A brilliant evening: Best of Lancashire Awards sponsored by Booths at Crow Wood Hotel & Spa Resort, Burnley
and live on Freeview channel 276
Hosted by entertainer and vocalist Jordan Williamson, and with key sponsorship from Booths, the glittering ceremony recognised Lancashire people really making a difference and celebrated with a proper Lancashire party.
With the help of some of our fantastic sponsors, every guest enjoyed a goodie bag on their chair, and a lovely four-course meal.
See a gallery of pictures from the dazzling event here.
Lancashire Post editor Nicola Adam said: "It was an emotional night with proper heroes from our community, it's so lovely to be able to give them the recognition they deserve. Thanks to all of the category sponsors and of course proper Lancashire supermarket Booths in its 175th anniversary year!"
The final award of the night - Lancashire Ambassador - was given to BBC Radio Lancashire's John Gilmore, a well known voice of the soundwaves for the past 35 years and a huge advocate for Lancashire.
John said: "Thank You for an amazing evening with some brilliant winners and lovely stories, I am very humbled."
