Tickets Now on Sale!

Following a record number of entries, Lewes District Council is pleased to announce that tickets are now available to purchase for presentation of the 2017 Lewes District Business Awards.

For the first time in the Awards’ history, the sparkling wine reception will be provided by award-winning local wine producer – Plumpton Estate. The local vineyard is world-renowned for its expertise in viticulture and oenology. It is also home to the only English-language wine degree course in Europe.

Following last year’s success at Lewes Town Hall, the Lewes District Business Awards return once more on Thursday 13 July. With a 30% increase in entries in 2017 and an exceedingly high calibre of entrants, this year is set to be one of the best.

Guests to the glittering ceremony will be able to sample more of what Plumpton Estate produces, as attendees will be served red or white options with their gourmet locally sourced celebratory dinner.

Liz Hobby of Plumpton Estate said: “We are delighted to be able to offer a range of our wines at this prestigious local awards. Our wine is uniquely crafted locally by students studying the BSc Viticulture & Oenology and FdSc Wine Production degree courses under the guidance of our Vineyard Manager and Winemaker. We hope it offers award attendees the perfect way to toast and celebrate the success of local businesses over the last year and the ideal accompaniment to the menu.”

The evening will be a celebration of the District’s business talent and achievement and is not one to be missed. Presented by BBC Television News presenter and correspondent, Ben Brown, who returns as host of the ceremony for a second year after impressing guests in 2015.

Around 200 of the District’s leading businesspeople, sponsors and judges are expected to attend, giving guests the perfect opportunity to network with peers, celebrate with colleagues and find out those all-important results!

Tickets cost £65 each.
