The Red Rose Awards are held in Blackpool every year, and play out in front of an audience of more than 1,000 business professionals. This 2021 event saw the awards celebrated for the eleventh time!

Businesses from the length and breadth of the county vied for titles across a range of categories, with only the best of the best, as selected by a panel of expert judges, progressing through to the shortlist and a rigorous interview stage before being rewarded for their excellence.

This is what the judges had to say: “A passionate and innovative business that has created attractions and a wide range of experiences for all that visit.

Each member of the team at Thornton Hall Country Park contributes to the success and high reputation that has attracted so many positive reviews and national press attention. An absolute jewel in the Lancashire tourism crown!”

Event founder Richard Slater, also the publisher of Lancashire Business View magazine, said: “The Red Rose Awards, now in its eleventh year, are very hotly contested, so THORNTON HALL COUNTRY PARK should be very proud that they have seen off all the competition to win this award!

As award winners, THORNTON HALL COUNTRY PARK collected a trophy specially crafted by trophy partner Pendle Engineering.

Long-standing ITV weather presenter Emma Jesson compered the evening, with entertainment from MH Productions, HONK Lancashire’s youth street band and The Tracks.
