Cumbria Tourism Awards 2018











There may be a few sore heads this morning after last night’s Cumbria Tourism Awards 2018 ceremony! Hospitality and leisure businesses from around the county were nominated in a wide range of categories and the winners had plenty to celebrate. The event was held at Cartmel Racecourse which was a stunning location and the marquee was beautifully set out. After a drinks reception with plenty of chance to mingle, Gill Haigh Cumbria Tourism’s MD gave a welcome speech and reminded us all what a great place Cumbria is to live and work – not that we really needed reminding as we know we are very lucky!

“The Voice of the Balls” and Strictly Come Dancing, Alan Dedicoat was an excellent host, keeping order and ensuring everything went smoothly. We sponsored the New Tourism Business Award, where the nominees were Another Place - Ullswater, The Wheatsheaf at Beetham and The Snooty Fox at Kirkby Lonsdale. The Judges decided that Another Place was the winner, and our director John Cooke (referred to as “Cookey” by Alan Dedicoat!) presented the award.

We were then treated to a delicious dinner prepared by the Ilex Brasserie at Holker Hall, including local Holker venison and Unsworth’s Cartmel ale, and very good it was too.

Our lovely table of guests were excellent company, and we were pleased that they were able to join us.

Our congratulations to all the winners on the night. The team at Cumbria Tourism Awards also deserve congratulations for putting on such a great event. They all clearly worked so hard and did their best to showcase our great county. Cumbria really is #theplacetobe!
