The 2019 SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards – sponsored by Neptune Rum – have got off to a flying start, with a phenomenal 476 nominations having been submitted by local businesses and organisations.
There are 22 categories up for grabs in this year’s awards, including Cultural Venue, Independent School and Sporting Venue to Restaurant, Independent Shop and Wedding Venue of the Year, with the 2019 category entrants representing the cream of the Gloucestershire lifestyle business crop.
SoGlos’s judges now face the challenge of deciding on a final shortlist from each category, which will be announced on Monday 11 March 2019, when public voting also opens via soglos.com/awards.
The winners will then be announced at an exciting awards event at the iconic Gloucester Cathedral on Thursday 16 May 2019, when around 350 Gloucestershire business people will come together for a unique evening of networking, supper, drinks and the live reveal of winners.
In addition to headline sponsorship from Gloucestershire’s very own Neptune Rum, SGGLA 2019 is also being supported by event partners including Gloucester Cathedral, Oasis Events, Dunkertons Cider, Cotswold Bar Company and Woozy Pig.
