Uckfield Business Awards 2022
Thursday 29 September 2022 / 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm£49.50
It’s the most glitzy night of the year! For well over a decade now, the Uckfield Business Awards have been a biennial feature of the town’s business scene although, sadly like every other event in 2020 didn’t happen as originally planned. But, fear not they are set to return on Thursday 29 September 2022 at the East Sussex National resort.
Planning these awards is a year in the making so it felt right that on Wednesday 22 September 2021, the 2022 event was announced at the Chamber members’ meeting, a complete year and a week until the big night. Of course, the awards can only happen with good engagement from our business community; it’s an opportunity to recognise excellence locally and enjoy a special occasion with the ‘great & good’ of Uckfield!
Like 2018, the last time we held the awards, our headline sponsor is CJ Thorne & Co., a third generation firm of civil engineering contractors. Thornes themselves are no strangers to winning prestigious industry awards and it is fitting that such a well recognised business leads the way with our sponsorship for the event. While Thornes will present the overall winner with their award on the night, we will have 15 award categories before we get to the true ‘drum roll’ part of the evening. Thank you to the 17 local businesses who have kindly agreed to sponsor or co-sponsor a category. Full details of both categories and sponsors can be found on the Uckfield Business Awards 2022 website.
With 130 entrants for the Awards, it was no easy task for our sponsors and judges to determine their short-list of three businesses for each category. The successful short-listed businesses were announced on Ashdown Radio on Friday 5 August and a complete list can be found HERE. We have written to all entrants advising of the outcome to date and thank you to each and every business who had entered.
The evening itself consists of a welcome drink reception followed by three courses with wine on each table of 10 people. The presentation of the awards is split in to three sections and the awards alternate with the courses, so you can take your time sampling the culinary delights of the award winning chef at the hotel, while waiting in anticipation of the respective award winners. Individual tickets can be purchased for the evening costing £49.50 or for a table of 10; do the maths: £495. Tickets will go on general sale once sponsors and finalists have had an opportunity to purchase.
